Hi, when you say that you have tried
move the MC to a frame that looks the same but with no button, but doesn't work
which mc you mean?
It's just that I would probably have the button in its own 2 frame mc, the first frame with the button, the second frame without the button. Then when the button is actioned I would send the button movie clip to the next frame. Is that what you have tried? I can't quite tell if you meant that the mc you were using was the entire movie, or a mc with just the button in it as I have just described.
