Hi Byron and all,

Byron has come across a feature (bug) in Flash that I have discussed
with many people including many on the List but apparently it has not
been discussed or at least not in detail on the List.

When moving a Shape Tweened object its shape hints do not move with it.

This has been very fustrating for me in making various versions of Shape
Tween Animations and is in the top 3 on all Flash 4 Wish Lists I have
sent to MM.
Even enclosing the shape tween animation in a Movie Clip doesn't fully
protect against hinting problems caused by resizing or moving. With any
size or position change a tween may need a reapplication of the hinting
or hinting when none was previously needed. My Cystal animation is a
good example of this. When I make a copy of the Crystal Movie Clip, I
may have to rehint one or two of the thirteen shape tweened facets.
