Right now I have a flash navigation on my left site and if the it lights up you can click the link, I just cant make a link in the text, like in normal HTML.

Anyone here knows that, a Normal text link in flash and not in the action.

If we say we have a text like "superman" written in flash, then I would say I just add url to that but it dossent work, the link is not active.

right now I have the links in the action behind the text, but the action must first be active before they can push the link and that is not always that easy, so I want a normal text link in flash.

How will you do a simple text link in flash?

thanks,
zeus

Not quite sure what youve been trying, but this is how i would do it:

Type your text, turn it into a symbol.
Select your symbol, open up the actions pannel.
Goto Actions>Browser>GetUrl
Type in the Url it goes to.

I found the problem everytime I tried to make a text link I had some action behind the text, so somehow they mixed up, so link would not be made, but now it works.

thanks again
