I'm getting this message in Publish Settings > Basic > Export Image assets:

"Name for images folder cannot contain any of the following characters: &[];=,*:.?<>|#%" and newline."

...So for some reason I'm not able to use a dot `.` in a file path... That doesn't make sense.

I NEED to go back out one directory for publishing images and JS. Is there some other syntax that can be used? How can I do this?

Hi BBaysinger

If you want JS, images and HTML exported to one level up in relation to your FLA file, put in the Publish Settings/Basic under Output name

../yourfilename

(you can also use the folder icon there to set the path)

Then under the tab Image settings by Export image assets you click the folder icon (Toggle off to export image assets in the same folder as the output file).

That's it

Move your FLA up one directory. Now your assets will export where you want them.
