    From Instance movie to main movie?

    Hey,

    I have made a movie which loads a seperate .swf file as a menu into an instance (AboutMenu.fla). I want to apply actions to the buttons so they perform in the main movie (1.fla). how can i do this?

    The main timeline is called _root , so thats the path to it.

    on(release){
    _root.gotoAndPlay("myFrameLabel");
    }

    That is, if you load your external file into a movieclip and not to a _level.

    Use framelabels instead of framenumbers.

    Why not? Going to a labeled frame as nothing to do with the number of layers!
