    help - links to urls don't work in flash 9

    Version: 3DFA exporting to flash 9

    Project: website


    I have a links list, which is a text element.
    this uses HTML HREFs to link to other websites when the user passes the pointer over the text. However, in this latest version of 3DFA, HREFS don't work when you export to flash 9!

    If I export to flash 8 the links work, but then I can't use real 3D objects in the project.

    This is a big problem in 3DFA - what's the use of a flash web editor that won't allow you to place HREF links to other URLS in your HTML???

    Please help - I need to go live with this asap.
    Is there a workaround?
    Thanks in advance.

    by the way - i have tried creating a menu element instead and adding an open url action to each item - same problem. why won't 3DFA link to URLS in flash 9?
    This makes the program almost useless for web design unless you use it in flash 8, where you lose the 3D features. Hope someone can post a fix!

    I've found a workaround to enable linking to URLS in 3DFA when exporting to flash 9:

    I use a menu element with each button acting as a link selector

    on the 'button down' actions tab add the following script

    import flash.net.URLRequest;
    var url:URLRequest = new URLRequest("http://yourURL");

    If there is any way to use HREFs I would like to know...
