Buffer - Adding the More and Less Buttons
First we have to create the "more" and "less" button symbols.
Create a new layer and in frame 1, the keyframe, put both the more and less buttons. To make the buttons work we need to add actions to each instance of the buttons. So in frame 1 of the button layer double click the more button to modify the instance properties. In the actions tab choose on MouseEvent from the drop down menu and check the Release box and the choose Go To from the drop down menu and check the Next Frame from the Frame option and ok. Do the same for the less button but instead of choosing Next Frame choose Previous Frame. Now add a keyframe to frame 5. Highlight frame 5 and then highlight the more button and delete it. Add a keyframe to frame 2 and then do the same in frame 1 for the less button.
To check the movie go to the Control menu and test movie. You should now be able to press the more and less buttons and see your bar buffer fill and empty with your segments.
