How do you edit in flash? I have some flash templates that I have opened in Dreamweaver and I can edit the pictures and text ok with my own but how do I edit the flash intro to enter my own data as it always opens up in the player?

Thanks

.fla files are edited in Macromedia Flash.

Are you opening the movies in Macromedia Dreamweaver or Macromedia Flash?

You can ONLY EDIT the .fla file INSIDE MACROMEDIA FLASH.

But is it the .FLA file? You cannot open the .SWF file in Flash.

If you just want to change the keywords, just open up in Dreamweaver, go into code view, and change the keywords. The keywords are not in the SWF file, and thus you don't need to edit the FLA file to change it.

I changed the keywords in the html file in Dreamweaver but the flash movie is still playing the original wording, must be locked somewhere

The keywords you see when you view the html is text, written in html. To change the text you see when you view source, just edit the page in dreamweaver.
To edit the stuff you see in the flash movie, you need to edit the flash movie.

It's not that hard :)
Did you understand the underlying principle of what you edit in Flash and what you edit in HTML?
