7.3 Reusable Components
Since Edge Animate supports the export and import of symbols, you can eas-

project. The following example shows a Google Maps component with a visible
container and title. The component will be used so that both the title and the
displayed location within the map are externally defined, such as by the parent

we set a trigger with the following script:
