No you didn't miss something but in Flash 2, if you have nerves of
steel, you can select a number of symbols in the library at a time and
and press delete. You will then be given a file by file message about
whether a file is in use or not and the choice to cancel the delete.
Just be sure not to click on the "yes to all" button. Make sure you have
just saved your .fla file before you do it. If you haven't saved the
.fla file when you start this procedure and then you edit some symbols
or remove some from the stage, Flash gets confused and still thinks a
symbol is in use when it isn't. Hope this helps.
