    For some reason, I am no longer getting any output from my trace statements when I use Control -> Test Movie. Could I have turned my output off somehow? I tried restarting flash and restarting my machine. I've put trace statements in code I know is getting executed, but for some reason, my Output window remains empty.

    Any suggestions?

    The first thing to do is make sure the "Omit trace actions" box is not checked off in the publish settings...

    It is not checked.

    My trace statements are at the beginning of my program, and in the _root.onEnterFrame.

    Thanks.

    Weird. Never had that one. Which version of Flash are you using?

    Try sticking some traces before the onEnterFrame (unless you know the onEnterFrame is working from something happening).

    I do have some trace statements before the onEnterFrame. I believe this started happening when I checked the "Omit Trace Statements" checkbox... but unfortunately, unchecking it does not seem to fix the problem :(

    Weird huh

    Thanks for the help
