       my problem is having the animation inside a graphic symbol reset and start over when i tween it or make a keyframe and move it in the main timeline or in the main graphic symbol.

       so im doing an animation and i have a talking character .the character is a graphic symbol (lets call this Tom)on the main timeline and inside it i have him split up into different symbol per body part . i have entered the head graphic symbol ( lets call this Tomshead) and animated the mouth lip synch to my audio file. now when i got back to Tom graphic symbol i want to make his head move up and down in a tween as he talks. the problem im having is that when i tween it in Tom as soon as it hits the tween section the mouth animation inside Tomshead resets and starts over. also if i make a new
Tomshead keyframe in the Tom timeline the lipsynch inside Tomshead starts over. ( not just the lipsynch all the eye and eyebrow etc expressions start over) it doesnt do this every time just sometimes but its causing a huge hurdle and slowdown for me in my animations .

         i need to be able to tween Tomshead without the lip movements and the blinking and expressions resetting every time it is keyframed in Tom. thanks in advance anyone who can help me with this.
