1 Make a new movie [CTRL+N] .  I will change my movie size to 100x100 pixels (Modify>Movie) and change it to black background.

2 Enter any text on your movie.  I used "Windings" font on this example.

While the text is still selection, convert this to "Graphics Symbol" by pressing F8 -or- Modify>Convert to Symbol.  Enter a name for your Symbol and choose Graphic then hit OK.
