    Why the.... (easy one?)

    Attached is a snippet of a project im working on.
    the problem Ive encountered is having a movie clip that thinks its physically a lot bigger than it is (self important/poser clip!)

    if I want to select a element below this poser clip (in publish mode) I cannot unless locking the poser clips layer.

    No biggie but driving me nuts as to why....

    Thanks for any shared wisdom

    That's the way I've allways done it (locking the above layer) to be able to access elements below that layer. That way (when locked!) the locked layer (whatever it's size!) can't be selected and accessed. No big deal is it? Two clicks on the timeline!

    your button's hit area needs to be a shape and not a movieclip ... so just break it apart

    thats It!

    Thanks for that A-V, thats it!
    I really dont understand why a movie clip as a hit area would act differently to a standard shape.

    BTW: oldnewbie....your exactly right, its no big deal when you have one (as in attached), but when you have a dozen of these it gets a tad frustrating to pick the one you want
