i thought what i was trying to do was simple but i am having a problem. I am making flash doc with 8 buttons and each buttons loads another movie clip. My main canvas is 541x358 and the movies that are loading with the buttons are excactly the same size as the original canvass. the problem is when is insert the movie clip as rollover or a hit and i preview the movie the button i created and the movie i inserted is a also a button. so since my movie buttons are the same size as my original canvass the whole thing is a rollover or hit, whichever. any solutions. thank you.
