Flash CS4: How do I find all instances of a movie clip in the timeline?

I've purchased a fairly complicated Flash web site template.  I'm still learning Flash and have completed about 10 hours of the Lynda.com training, so I kinda know what I'm doing.

This template is a 26 layer monster and I'm having trouble finding certain elements.

I look in the library and I see that a movie clip has been used 10 times in the template.  How can I locate all ten instances of the object in the timeline?

  • Go to Edit > Find Next (or F3) to pull up the find window.  
  • In the 'For:' drop down menu, find the name of your movie clip.  You're looking for the name of the movie clip in the library, not the export name.  
  • Hit 'Find next' and it should tell you the locations in the window at the bottom.
  • Double-clicking should select the instance in on the stage and the correct frame in the timeline.
I hope this helps.

There is no easy way to do that...  But I think Movie Explorer(Alt + F3) is your best bet to start from...
