Newbie Movie Size problem

Spent a lot of time making a menu type navigation widget for my site...

Problem is I didnt really give too much attention to the size of the swif and the eventual size of the widget when in a browser ...

The result is that I have a massive scene with this tiny (yet pretty groovy) navigation widget in the middle. When I stick it in the sidebar of my new website I couldnt see it... so I had to reposition the widget in the top left so that icould see it on my webpage.

Is there anyway to change the size of the movie or the part of the scene that is actually displayed.
Or even to magnify what is there so that it sills the whole scene then I can change the way that the HTML shows it.

Ill only be around for a while... so I will get back to you when I get in to work tomorrow morning.

Choose "Modify - Movie" from the menu. Then you can resize the whole stage to any size you need.

After that you may need to move your widgets to the right places.

Another solution: Just resize the widget so that it fills the whole stage.
