i've read the sticky and that document is great. http://www.umbc.edu/interactive/flas...e.php?p=depths.
i have just a quick question for you:
i have 2mc's on the stage. 1 called 'hero' the other called 'square'. inside the 'square' mc are 2 mc's called 'square1' and 'square2'. is there anyway at all that i could make the hero appear infront of square 2 and at the same time behind square 1?
does this mean the above question cannot be done?
from that document
The depths of objects can only be changed in respect to other objects within that same timeline. This applies to both actionscript and when working in the Flash authoring environment. What this means is that if you have two movieclips, clipA and clipB and they each have their own clips within, then those interior clips depths can not be changed or rearranged in relation to each other. The only way to rearrange their depth positioning is if you rearranged clipA's and clipB's depths directly which would then of course rearrange everything within those clips either above or below the other

Yes, it cant be done as far as I know as swapDepths work individually in each timeline.
