key presses not working
I thought I'd try out some of AS3's new animation and collision detection features. I started by creating a simple asteroid game. I thought it would be nice to use keypresses to trigger the movement. However, I can't seem to get any keypress to work. I've tried adding the keypress on the right/left keys as well as the A and D keys. The same animation works with button presses if I insert buttons to create the interaction. I've tried this is in both preview and publish mode. I've checked the published version on a virtualized Windows 10 env. (VMWare) as well as in Chrome on OS X. I've tried removing any other reference to trigger the motion. I've tried recreating the interaction in a new .story file.
But still no dice. The keypress interactions appear to not register at all. I'm including the very basic .story file if you're interested in looking at it. Any ideas why my keypresses don't seem to register?
