    exporting from mx 2004 to mx

    Hi,

    Are there any issues with exporting movies from mx 2004, to the old mx format? For the time being I might want to use mx 2004 to still develop for mx (Flash 6).

    thanks

    phil.

    I ran into an issue....

    I took an MX .fla and opened it in MX 2004. I saved it as MX 2004. Later, I wanted to work on it using MX. I resaved it as MX. Opened it in MX and published it as Flash 6.

    All of my input boxes refused to recognize some special characters (@#$%^&*) to name a few. Now I must publish this fla inside of MX 2004 as a Flash 6 swf.

    It sucks because I prefer MX over MX 2004.

    Copy all frames from your wrongly saved movie from the main timeline and open a new flash file and paste all frames into the new file. Then save as old MX. That works.

    How can one save a .fla to open from MX to 5?
    The other day, I bought a box of animal crackers. On the side, it said "Do Not Eat if Seal is Broken". I opened the box and sure enough...

    Transfer from MX2004 to MX and then open from another computer where only the old MX is installed to 5.

    Sorry but I think this is the only way. I have such a set up, since I had to buy a new Mac for 2004 because of the system.
