    I have made a side bar in flash. the side bar has 9 bottons. I made one button then moved the button over to a new document 9 times. Now whenever I try to edit one button so that I can add text, they all change, I have tried adding an instance name but that doesn’t seem to help, any advice?

    Did you make them on different layers? If you didn't, that is the problem. It's the same in Photoshop. If you create 9 images but they're on the same layer, they will all be modified when you only try to modify one. Or by a new document do you mean a new layer?

    What do you mean moved it over to a new document? If you create a symbol, anytime you edit the symbol itself, everytime that symbol is in your movie, it will change (that's usually a positive feature in Flash). What you can do is edit the symbol in the movie, or you can make a "button template."

    Make the button with no text or anything. Then create a new symbol for each of your 9 buttons, then drag your button template into those new button symbols. Then you can edit each of the buttons seperately without increasing file size too much.
