    External Control of main timeline

    Hi. I'm befuddled. hehe. I should know this, but for some reason my synapses aren't synapsing. My pages navigation is an external movie clip(I DONT KNOW WHY!heehee)and I'm having problems with that...but I can figure that out. What I'm trying to get ahead with is, should I place buttons in the MAIN movie(that's loading the external nav) for the navigation? Or is it feasible for me to have the buttons in the external nav to control the MAIN timeline? I'm sure all I need to do is use .root to tell it where to go, but I'm not sure if it can do that. Ummm. Let me clear that up. I have external movie clip loaded into main timeline of main movie. Can I control the main timeline with the bottons in an external movie clip? Thanks for any help. SOrry about the disorganization.

    Yes. Once an external is loaded to a main, it's no longer an external, but just another part of the main, in the same way a movie clip in the library is.
