I have been stuck on the same problem for 8 hours, and I just cannot figure it out. Any help would greatly be appreciated. I am using the Against the clock textbook for CS4. It says to place the object at location x:0 y:50, but I have to place it at x:0 y:-70 to have it appear where it is supposed to. All the other objects are in the correct locations as far as the x/y axis.
What in the world would cause an object to display in the wrong spot? The center point is where it is suppose to be on the object which is a movie_clip.
I am totally baffled, and this is very frustrating. I was planning on buying CS5, but I can't even use CS4 correctly, lol /
It is hard to imagine why you cannot place the object where you want it. You should be able to place the object on the stage and then specify its x and y parameters in the Properties panel (or do it with actionscript when the file runs).
Sounds like the registration point has been, or needs to be moved. There is a registration point "+" and a pivit point "o" other than that I can't think og a reason it would do that unless it is a mosprint in the book.
