i don't quite understand what the problem is specifically- pc files on a
mac for the most part can't be opened by double-clicking. in some cases, you
can open them by doing file>open

there is an app out there called flash FLA typer and flash SWF typer that
attached flash files to flash instead of whatever- quicktime in my case. i
don't remember which of the many resource website i d/l from but if you
email offlist i'll zip it to you.

don't get me started on a rant ---> new media dept head. i got a out of
university a year ago- the dept head wouldn't buy flash because he said they
already had director6 and flash was redundant. (oh, and they wouldn't
upgrade to dir6.5- and Qt 3 was out -but that's another story...)
i ended up buying it myself and within 2 months half the multimedia class
was using and buying flash3. to not buy flash 5 just because he/she can't
open a file is downright stoopid. he must be tenured.
