Sizing rectangle - Macromedia Flash

Hello, I have a rectangle that gets bigger over 20 frames. If I just draw a rectangle and shape tween it, the border stays the same size(which is what I want) But, if I create a symbol out of a rectangle and stretch it out in a motion tween the border gets bigger too. How can I do this with a symbol without changing the border size? Thanks Mike...

    Default Sizing rectangle

    Hello,
    I have a rectangle that gets bigger over 20 frames.
    If I just draw a rectangle and shape tween it, the border stays the same
    size(which is what I want)
    But, if I create a symbol out of a rectangle and stretch it out in a motion
    tween the border gets bigger too.
    How can I do this with a symbol without changing the border size?
    Thanks
    Mike

    Use hairlines for the edges

    If you have thick edges, then you cannot scale it as it is.

    Maybe try using the drawing API instead to dynamically draw your rectangle.

    Or make the edges separate objects so you can stretching vertically or
    horizontally as appropriate (then the thickness won't change.

    you can also solve this problem by converting the lines to fills. select the
    shape and go to modify / shape / convert lines to fills.

    But then you would still have the same problem if you want to make it get
    bigger. Doesn't solve the problem at all.
