Thread: Rulers ??? Why does Flash bother!!

  1. #1
    why is it when I click on an object on the main stage the x and y axis are related to Rulers but an object in an MC has no relevants at all?

    If i select an object in an MC and it is smack in the middle of my stage, the info pallet keeps telling me that it is 6px away from the edge. what is with that. whats the point in having rulers if it doesnt rated to Levels???

    Am I missing something here?

    I *think* I know what you are talking about here. I'm thinking that if you open the MC and place the object at x y 0,0 then when you put that MC on the stage it should be acurate to the stages rulers...

    Not sure if I follow you but...

    I think I have figured it out and it 's stupid!

    The stage in an MC the ruler Units starts from the centre point of the MC.
    Unlike the main stage that starts from the top left corner.
    So what it comes down to is that it is bloody hard to line things up exactly 100% when using different levels.

    they should give you a choice.

    Ahh well it happens..

    Yep, your right...thats why I was saying to make the object in the MC set to x,y 0,0.

    Glad you got it worked out!
