Step 3: Creating and inserting the buttons
Create a new layer and name it "Buttons". Hit the F8 key. This will open the Symbols Properties. Name the symbol "FormButton" and select Button as the Behavior.
After you hit OK you will be given a blank canvas to create your button. Select the Rectangle tool. Use a black stroke with the hairline option selected and a dark gray for the fill. Draw a rectangle box. For the over frame fill the box with a light gray.
One button will be used for both form buttons. This allows for quick editing in the future. The button symbol will be used twice, one for the the reset button and one for the submit button.
Now you can put your buttons on the main timeline with the form. Go back to Scene 1 where the form is. Select Ctrl + L (Command + L for Mac users) and drag the symbol labeled FormButton to the bottom right of the form. Drag another button symbol to the left of the button you just inserted under the form.
All right, now we have our form all ready with header, background, outlines, and buttons. Lock your current layer ("Buttons") and Let's go to the next step and get some text in there.
