    Macromedia Flash 8 - Symbols

    I've had this problem for a while now, the preferences panel seems to be of no help. I'm running Flash 8 on Linux and am using the WINE emulator. I've tried google but any search terms I can use are too vague.

    Whenever I draw / make lines they're automatically converted into symbols. It makes it difficult to fill anything in or continue drawing without going into each clip and specifically drawing it there. I know I can right click > break apart, but I'd rather avoid them turning into a symbol in the first place.

    There should be an actual setting when you click the line tool that you can click which says something along the lines of draw in symbol. I have CS4 right now but I beleive it's similar in pro 8:
