I've been working with Flash for a couple of years and this
"bug" has been around forever, I think. The "bug" is the small
change in values entered on Movie Clips' (and other objects')
positions or dimensions at authoring time.
For instance, sometimes I draw a square and I make it
150*150px. I go to work on other things, then click the square
again to reposition it and notice that it's not 150*150px anymore,
it's 149.9*150px or something like that. The first couple of times
it happened I thought that I might have accidentally nugded or
re-scaled things when I clicked them, but after a while I noticed
it happened independently of moving or clicking the object.
Normally I wouldn't bother with 0.1px differences, but since some
of my projects have involved zooming bitmaps that are divided into
slices and are later assembled, well... Those 0.1px differences
become much larger and easy to spot.
This happens to me too. About 99% of the time I can just
re-enter the correct size and that fixes it...or atleast it gets it
closer to the correct size and i just repeat till it is the correct
If anyone knows how to fix this once-and-for-all please let
