I have a flash file with buttons (which are instances of the same button symbol).
The button symbol is made up of a rectangle with a text field.
When I duplicate the button 5 times (for example) to make 5 buttons and then I change the text in one of them, it changes for all of them.
But I can write individual onRelease script for each one.
How can I change the text for each button to be different without also changing all the others.
I tried writing button1.text1.text = "button text123"; on the main canvas, but it doesn't work.
I know I can make duplicate symbols and use one instance of each but then it is a huge hassle to resize all the buttons, because I have to resize every symbol one by one, or remake them all, just to change the width for example.
I use a program called Sothink Quicker (but it's very similar to what Macromedia Flash was).
Here is an example of the swf.
