    How to Edit Hyperlinks in Flash (without ActionScript?)

    Hi. Flash noob here. I "inherited" a Flash file that has hyperlinks that I need to change. For the life of me, I can't figure out how to do it. I open up the .fla file (in MX 2004), and I can see everything there. However, when I select one of the buttons, in the Actions panel, there's nothing there except "Current selection cannot have actions applied to it." I've been poking around in the menus and right-clicking everything in sight, and I simply can't find where the hyperlinks were set up.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hard to say without seeing the file. Look on the first frame of timeline for an empty layer called actions (if they bothered to name the layers as most people seem to not) there will be a small a in the keyframe if there are actions on it.

    Also selected text can have a link applied to it in the properties inspector using the link input field.

    If this does not help, post the .fla for us(someone) to look at.

    I do see a small "a" on one of the titles, but all that appears in the Actions panel for that one is this (which doesn't help me figure out how to change the hyperlink):

    Code:
    this.buttons._visible = false;
    I've attached the .fla file (within a zip). My guess is that someone with even a small amount of experience will figure this out in about 8 seconds.

    Thanks for any help!

    On the 'buttons' layer open the movieclip called 'buttons' (the grey button backgrounds)
    Within this movieclip you have you have the 5 individual buttons. Select one and open the actions window and you'll see the code to change for each link.

    e.g

    Code:
    on (press) {
    	getURL ("Homepage.html");
    }
