Can I edit a actor?
Can a prototype become a actor?
What happen to the actor if I edit a prototype? What happen to the other prototypes.

    Hi titos

    A prototype IS an actor, i.e before it's been unlocked. When it's unlocked, it's called an instance of the prototype.

    If you edit the prototype by double-clicking an actor in the Actors Inspector, all actors on stage that haven't been unlocked change accordingly, as well as any other new actors you drag out from the Actors Inspector area.

    To unlock a prototype actor you go into its editor page and click on the lock. Then you can delete/add/amend, etc and this will only change that particular actor as it's now unlocked, i.e an instance. Hope that helps out; the more you work with GS the more it'll click with you, for certain!
