    Positioning text instances

    laurafergusson

      Hi all.

       

      I'm using Flash CS4 and want to fade in some text. My problem is that I can't get the 100% Alpha text to easily be in the same position as the 0%, without actually amending the co-ordinates (which is time consuming).

       

      At frame 1, I enter the text on the stage and create a symbol out of it, then I go to frame 60 (for example) and drag an instance of the symbol onto the stage. I then create a Classic Tween between them - but the 100% text is always in a slightly different location and so the text moves (which I don't want it to).

       

      I know this is probably totally the wrong way to go about this but can anyone help? What am I doing wrong?

       

      Many thanks in advance.

      Laura
