Question: I get the error 'Symbol must be a bitmap object', but the library object I am using is a bitmap object. I can double click on the library object and the bitmap editor will load it. What is the problem? 

Symbols will only display bitmap objects from libraries. If the library object is not a bitmap object, you will get the error message 'Symbol must be a bitmap object'. Your problem is most likely that your symbol contains a bitmap and some other object. If this is the case, the library object is a group of objects, one of which is a bitmap. You can test this by (1) opening the library object, (2) using Edit Select All, (3) using Tools Convert to Bitmap and (4) save the library object. Then try to use that library object again.
