    the file can be dl'd from here:

    http://home.pacbell.net/justha3/slogan.swf

    I would like it to read:

    find your dream (no change)

    And in the same style and format replace "JS Realty Services" with "realize your goals."

    thanks for the reply. Ill keep in touch.

    I still am in need of an edit.

    Is it even possible to edit something someone else made?

    I opened it up in MX 2004 and I couldnt get any editing buttons to show up!

    I think you need a .swf to .fla decompiler. I don't think you can directly edit an .swf.

    You'd be correct. If it was a flash file you could do it with a text editor, but not with a shockwave file.

    well, I have been playing with Sothink's decompilier. The text in the movie it treated as individual letters. With Sothinks free decompiler, it adds a damn "powered by Sothink" logo to my file....

    I think I may be able to get it.. but Im learning slowly.

    I only ask or help here because I really cant afford taking the time to learn MX. Hopefully one day.

    I can make the .fla but MX 2004 doesnt recognize the file format once it tries to open it.

    Generate the .fla and post it here, I'll see what I can do with it.

    That file is just some crappy text animation created in Swish. With no flash knowledge you could recreate that in about 5-10 minutes

    would you care to enlighten me?

    I appreciate your input, but it was in no way helpful to my cause whatsoever.

    What is "Swish" and might you point me in the right direction so I may attempt to "recreate it in about 5-10 minutes"?

    I would love it if it were that easy.

    Its basically a wizard for flash. In Swish 2 (free 15 day trial from swishzone) the effects (in order) are slide, explode, transform. Nothing complicated

    And i take back the time i said it would take, its more like 45 sec-1 minute
