Thanks for the reply, however, one of the very first sentences is incongruent with the required action. In that link, at line four it says:
Parenting affects all transform properties except Opacity: Position, Scale, Rotation, and (for 3D layers) Orientation
Call me crazy, but that is just about every transform property I am apt to ever use. I want to link three layers to transform position, but that page says unequivocally that position is one of the exceptions.
Also, I cannot understand the use of the colon in the sentence, but if it is meant to indicate that only opacity is excepted, and the other properties are in fact allowed, it would surely rank as one of the most poorly written sentences I have ever seen in any set of instructions.
I would be grateful if you could clarify the contradiction.
I'll rewrite the sentence for you, since the colon threw you off.
Parenting affects all transform properties except Opacity. Parenting affects Position, Rotation, Scale, and Orientation.
Ah, now I can understand the sentence. Thanks. I would like to point out one thing though, That sentence as it reads with the semicolon would throw many people off, not just me, because it is wholly incorrect. Precision of language in instructions is extremely important. One of the problems manual writers face is too much familiarity with the subject matter, which causes them to overlook certain flaws in explanation. The writer has to try to read each sentence from the vantage point of someone entirely unfamiliar with the subject.
