Subject: FLASH: text buttons
From: tristan.wuerslin

I need help with a text button. I want to use a text symbol in another
"button" symbol such that if I ever need to adjust the rollover button, all
I have to do is change the symbol text that it was based off of.
However, I want the 3 states of the button to have different colors. How
can I do this? I want only one "original" reference symbol.
The only way I can see to do this is make copies of the original text symbol
and change their colors and import them into the button symbol. But that
means a lot of work if I ever need to change the text or colors.
The other way I found was to go into the button and break apart the symbol
on the rollover and down states so that I could change the color. However,
this is also time consuming.

Does anyone know of a way to only have one symbol as a reference for a
button, but such that I can have different colors for the rollover and down
states.....and such that updating the text and colors can all be done from
the original text.
