ok … you were right about the symbol. it does need to be changed. sometimes i have problems converting things to symbols from the stage especially variable elements or buttons so i usually just “insert > new symbol” from the start and save myself the hassle.
as far as your dynamic text not loading thats b/c in your first fram you have an onLoad command that tells flash to load the text into the textfield. you’ve told it the file name that you want it to load but when you specified where to load it to on the main frame that was fine. now its in a symbol that symbol has an instance on the main stage so you need to change the path in your code to reflect that move.
i.e. before your code was going to “textBox” now it needs to go to “symbolName.textBox”.
once you have it in a symbol and functioning properly you should be able to apply tweens to the symbol.
