Animate symbols with a bone tool in Adobe Flash CS4

In this Software video tutorial you will learn how to animate symbols with a bone tool in Adobe Flash CS4. Open up a stage in Adobe Flash and put say five oval symbols vertically like links in a chain. All the symbols are in one layer. Grab the bone tool from the right side, click the mouse on the top of the 1st link and drag and leave it at the bottom or the top of the 2nd link. Now repeat this process for the top four links. Take the ‘selection tool’ from the right side to manipulate the bone tool. With the selection tool, come down to the bottom anchor point created by the bone tool and you can move the chain in any direction. Your chain link is now animated.
