Setting up the Main Timeline

Step 2 : Add MC "mousecursor" to the Main Timeline

Once your have your cursor created we have to place it on the main timeline but just off the movie visible area so it doesn't appear when the users mouse isn't over the movie. To do this open your Library once again and drag a instance of the symbol "maincursor" onto the stage.

Next name the instance "maincursor" by using the Instance Panel.

Finally create a simple button on the button layer with a simply mouseover effect - you should know how to do that. Nothing special about it - mine is there simply to show how the cursor works when over it.
