Hi Judy,
I always make a movie/movie clip diagram when I start a project that
looks in any way complicated. (and sometimes even when it's not
I start at the bottom with a main movie box with small squares inside
that box for each MC placed on the main timeline.
Next I draw a box on the next highest row for each of those movie clips
and draw a line from the main movie small box to the second row movie
clips.- I put the movie clip name and the instance name under each box
and any buttons in those movie clips are noted down too.
I continue this for every movie clip or loaded movie in the movie. I
also note the actions in each mc and any special notes that relate to
those actions. The basic diagram form is similar to the one I used for
my Tell Target tutorial diagram. The URL for that is in my sig file.
I've found this procedure helps enormously, especially if I am working
on several things at once. Is this the kind of thing you were looking
