In this example we will put a sound from the common libraries into the movies library, and then play it.

From the menu select Window, Common Libraries, Sounds.

open the sound library

In the sound library, select a sound. You can drag the corner of the window to make it bigger. You can also drag the little line before the word "Linkage" so that you can see the full name. After selecting a sound you can either copy and paste it into the movies library, or drag it into the movies library.
