New to flash... losing too much time for something that should be simple. I am adapting a flash that almost does what I am looking for. However, there is one element (searchfield) which is right-aligned, and it stays that way. If I move it, or change coordinates, it does change its up&down position, but stays right aligned (no absolute position, it shifts when window is made larger/smaller).
I do need a clue where I turn that off. I found several levels of layers, and I think I have put every (text) align to left. Still no use.
Flash CS4 Professional
Flash player 7
Export to movie *.swf
If the object is being forced to align to the right side, then there is likely some code in the file that is forcing that to happen. So if you select the object on the stage you should see an instance name assigned to it in the Properties panel. You will need to look in the Actionscript for any code that uses that instance name.
Found it! Layout in script is powerful, but confusing for starters. I found the lines and turned them off.
