Referencing Movie Clips stored in Folders within the Library

The Insert Symbol Generator object allows you to dynamically load symbols from your library and place them into you movie.

It is good practice to to create folders within your library in order to better organize your symbols, however this can make it difficult to reference the symbols from Generator.

For example, if you have the following library structure:

Symbol Library

and you try to load mySymbol1 from the Insert Symbol object, then the symbol not contained in a folder will be loaded.

If you want to load the symbol mySymbol1 which is contained in folder1, then you have to specify the path to the symbol like this :


This will load the symbol contained within the folder.
