If I change the color of an instance on the main timeline it works perfect in html5.

If I change the color of an instance on the timeline of a movieclip, which is not on the main timeline - then it does not work anymore.

does anybody know why? and what I can do, that it works again?

thanks for a hinch

i've had the previous versions and never encountered that, and i've not seen anyone else report that issue.  my guess is a clean install of that same version would have fixed the problem, too.

 

but there's not need to test that.  all's well that ends well.

that looks good.

 

assign, at least, one custom keyboard shortcut (if you have none now)

reset your animate preferences, https://helpx.adobe.com/animate/using/set-preferences.html

confirm you were successful by trying to use that custom shortcut (that should fail).

if it fails, retest your fla

yes i was successful. thanks for that.

in the meantime i could try the script on another computer. and it worked perfect. like on yours. then we compared everything we found - and the difference was, that my version animate cc 2021 was not with the latest update. after the update of animate cc 2021 - it works! i wonder, why adobe did not inform, that there is an update and that the older version of animate cc 2021 had quite a heavy big bug.
im very sorry to have kept you busi with my problem. but i learnd quite a few things. thank you so much for your kindness and help!

during all the tries and errors i thought, maybe the reason it did not work right is, that it was not on the main timeline. so i made a version on the main timeline. when i publish it, it counts perfect for the first run. if i click again it starts at frame 1. with the second click it jumps to frame 3, then to frame 5, then to frame 2, again to frame 5 and after a few clicks more it even jumps backward. strange things still happen also with the super-newest version...
