So I teach a basics of Hype class at a local college every spring semester and tonight I was having the students stepping through making a basic animated menu that survives all scene changes by using persistent symbols. Had a student show me their menu that would only work if I clicked on it twice. I couldn’t figure out why. So I took the file home and deleted everything I could out of it until all that’s left is an ellipse that is supposed to animate on a motion path. The thing is though, the ellipse doesn’t move. It’s like there’s an action on the symbol’s timeline telling it to pause at the beginning, except there isn’t. It’s the damnedest thing. See attached zip. If you check the symbol’s timeline, there’s an animation, but it never animates on previewing. Anyone seen this before?
