    Keeping Control of Active Area Dimentions

    Level 7
      As the subject reads, I am having a hard time keeping control of my button
      dimensions.

      I am starting with a 12pt "About" text and converting it to button symbol.
      The Up and Over state reads 16x46, in the Active Area I unchecked the "set
      active area automatically" and set my own dimensions of 20x48. Now, when I
      place the button symbol in the stage it reads 17x48!
      I forgot to mention I added a bit of glow to the over state, but it is
      almost negligible.

      To top it off, the slice name is a million digit number, instead of a slice
      number format.

      Is there a better technique to have a tighter control of my buttons?

      Thank you for your assistance,
      Ricky
