Weird button inheritance issues

Hi -

I'm using the FS-SpecialMenu (http://www.flashkit.com/movies/Interfaces/Menus/FS-Speci-Matthias-4565/index.php) which I modified to contain links and buttons. The problem is, and for the life of me I can't figure out why, is that each new instance I create of the menu inherits the traits of the old menu. Not only that, any change in either menu creates a duplicate change in the other menu. What this means is changing the button's behaviors in one menu instance creates the same change in the other menu(s). This creates real problems because I need the buttons to point to different links in each menu.

Here is the source file: http://www.foundmyself.com/menu.fla

Thanks a lot.

It's because you are using the same clip from the library for each menu. You will have to duplicate the clip in the library to be able to edit it on the stage and have it only affect that clip.

Thanks I just realized this last night. I actually just made the buttons' "on(press) { getURL" point to a variable, so now each button has a different link. Thanks for the help :)
