This kind of answers my question. I do mean a preload sequence, actually. I
think what I'm looking for, now that you've explained the aspects of a
preload sequence is:

If I put all the symbols, other than the audio, in its own scene and
specified a preload sequence for that scene, would the symbols be preloaded
for the next scene containing the animation?

Hopefully, that makes sense, I've never had a way with words. =)
