I'm currently using 8.5 (not so patiently awaiting my upgrade
- thanks to the slow wheels of the university). I have a client who
complains that the test I'm sending him is not centered. It appears
centered in my monitor, but I think he is viewing it on a larger
monitor. Is there anyway to ensure that the view, no matter what
their monitor size will have a centered projector?
Under Modify>Movie >Properties, I've chosen centered,
but it seems to just use my monitor size and place it a specific
pixel amount from the top and left.
it could be that he is using a widescreen monitor, or
possibly a dual screen, which can affect how it centers due to the
fact that 8.5 had ni idea what a WS was at the time, and only rich
people had duals.
I can't remember the exact code for 8.5 and much in MX2004 (2
versions later) was deprecated or altered, but basically what you
have to do is detect the screen width and height, calculate the Top
and left positions and then move the stage to those dimensions.
You may also want to consider an auto-resolution change so
that while the movie is playing the user's resolution fits the
movie size, thereby making it full screen. Most will automatically
set it back again when they close the project.
