    Absolute Positioning help needed

    revdave Level 1

      Hi Folks,


      I'm just a newbie to absolute positioning...


      I'm working on a complex absolute positioning page with lots of absolute positioning text.


      When I use DW8 on pc and I try to move absolute divs - they jump around to the wrong place and / or resize themselves way beyond what I dragged.


      ex: I will click on a piece of text and a blue box highlights the whole div. - when i get the 4 arrow cursor - I then try to drag a corner or middle marker at the dot and when I let go the box never does what I expect - too small or big or jumps to a different place.


      Also the same happens when I try to drag the top left box to move the whole object.


      I imagine some kind of snap to grid setting might be on or some other absolute positioning issue....


      Q: Any ideas how to fix this?


      ex code:

      <div id="apDiv3" style="position: absolute; left: 172px; top: 76px; width: 728px; height: 16px; z-index: 3; text-align: left"><strong>some text here</strong></div>
