Content Overflow in Symbols


#1

Hi,
I’ve been using masked animated groups with content overflow set to ‘hidden’ in order to animate a sprite sheet.

(I used an adapted version of Jonathans workaround here very successfully http://hype.desk.com/customer/portal/questions/212974-using-sprites-with-hype)

However, now I’ve got Hype3 Pro I’m trying to use these animations as symbols instead of just in the scenes… am I correct in thinking masking and content overflow in a symbol is not preserved if the symbol is then placed in a scene? do I have to place the symbol in a group and then remask the area?

Many thanks.

You are correct that any properties you set on the Symbol itself are not synchronized with other symbols, but if you place everything inside of your symbol inside of a group (which is inside of the symbol) any changes you make to the group (masking, etc) will be synchronized to the other instances.
