Hi Karen,

No, and in my opinion it never was. Splitting up files should be
normally done only if the files would be needed in a random-access
patern instead of in a preset order and only if quite large.

No, symbols are not available on the free market though you can Tell
Target Movie Clips to use assets in another movie. See my post yesterday
on this.

Doesn't matter because thet are not shared.
