Flex can't find fl.transitions

In Flex, I have 2 AS projects located in 2 different directories, with the same build paths.

One project has no problem seeing fl.transitions.  When I type "import ", it brings up a list of imports, including "fl"

The other project does not.

How the crap do I get Flex to act consistently and find this stuff??

Obvious but maybe there is some mistake in the include path in your 2nd project that is not including the path to the .fl classes which your first project has got correctly.

Maybe the first project has a copy of the classes buried inside a subdirectory of the project.

If not I'd start 2 fresh projects in different directories, put the same base code in each using the fl.transitions, if they work then put the code from your real projects in each project, debugging as you go.

If that fixed it then shrug and remember that quirk for another day :-)

If you own Both Flex Builder AND Flash CS3 you can simply add the folder "Actionscript 3" in the Flash folder in Apps >> Configuration >> Actionscript it, you add this path to your project.

sorry, I forgot to respond.

I had seen that actionscript.org post earlier, but it didn't help any.

I can't find any difference between the 2 projects except that one is down a few directory levels.  Still, they point to the same library and SDK.

Try backing up your source files, delete the project then build a new one in the same directory, then move your source files back into that location.

Still can't find any solutions, but thanks to both for your suggestions.
