If you are comfortable with changing HTML code, why not abandon OAM export?
Thank you for your reply. This led me to open up the HTML file which is generated by using OAM. When I opened up that HTML file in Dreamweaver, the boundary/scroll bar problem did not exist in that file. Which is all well and good, It's just that Adobe is recommending OAM publishing as a viable solution for moving from a Canvas Animate file to an animated OAM file which can easily be inserted in Dreamweaver:
This is very attractive to users like myself who would like to use these products with a minimal of coding. The problem is that right now the problem I'm running into mentioned above is a show stopper and so far no one is suggesting another solution beyond abandoning the OAM approach which Adobe is recommending as the above link will show.
I would appreciate it if someone from Adobe would address this issue on this forum.

I think back to WYSIWYG editors.
I think in promoting the OAM approach, it should have the caveat (if you are not comfortable editing an HTML file).
I can tell you that Flash CC had padding, that I had to manually remove that Animate now removes like this
Is this your gray?
<body onload="init();" style="background-color:#D4D4D4;margin:0px;">

According to the above link, all one has to do is a few simple steps and your Animate animation will be inserted and working just fine in Dreamweaver. The animation may be working just fine, but according to my experience the display will not look as it did in Animate - probably due to padding problems. If I understand your suggestion above, I do think that code is available in the HTML generated by Animate and OAM. Since no one from Adobe is responding to this fundamental question regarding OAM padding at the moment, I think my only recourse will be to attempt to work with the generated HTML file directly. Thanks for taking the time to reply.
Looks like WYSIWYG DW mode to me, if you can drag to position.
Animate is the authoring tool. There is no Canvas Player. How it looks in a browser is how it looks. Sample that gray, I bet it is this :#D4D4D4
I sampled the gray and it turned out to be #CCCCCC.
Although the #D4D4D4 color is included in the html file generated by Animate.
It's curious though that #CCCCCC is not included anywhere in either the file generated by Animate or in my CSS. So, where is it coming from?
Thanks again for your reply!
I just exported one of my canvas files as OAM. 585K! Are you kidding me?
I opened my OAM file with Notepad++. Gibberish.
I just contacted Adobe support with their chat line and presented the problem to them. I also just shipped them sample copies of the OAM and FLA files. I'm really interested in seeing what they say.
The mystery continues!
Thanks again for your replies!
Can you share your OAM and FLA files here as well. (you can upload on dropbox and share the link here or PM me.)
I'd like to check out what's going wrong..
Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Right after you wrote your note above, the screen on my iMac died. It's in the shop now. As soon as I get it back, I'll get back to you.
I'm not sure how to PM you. Please let me know how to do that.

oam on the left is from edge animate and it's timeline is controlled with scrolling. The oam on the right from animate cc plays on it own with the same scroll settings in muse http://www.jacksoncoker.com/Promos/Prototypes/WhitePaper/WP2/untitled-4.html
