Title: Re: FLASH: Crop a Movie stage?

Thanks, Marc!
Moving elements all at once worked fine following your directions.  Quick and painless.  I then reduced stage accordingly.

    Sorry, you can only reduce stage as you have noted.

    You must move all elements manually, however you can move them all at once:
    1) Unlock all layers
    2) Choose Edit Multiple Frames
    3) Select Onion All from onion skin item
    4) Perform a Select All
    5) Drag (with mouse) or reposition (with arrow keys) all elements at once.

    I recommend you do this on a backup copy until you get the hang of it.
