    I am working in Flash CS4 and putting text into movie symbols so as to look like closed captioning word-by-word.

    I have placed several of the movie symbols into the stage/timeline and only one 'plays' as I scrub through the timeline in the main scene. The other ones just show the first scene of the symbol through the duration.

    How do I get all of them to play as I scrub through the timeline?

    Having to test the whole movie is getting really annoying just to make little adjustments to the placement.

    If the explanation doesn't make sense, just say so and I'll try explaining better.

    Use the properties panel to make the movie clip instances behave like graphics (graphics sync w/ the timeline; MCs don't)
