This is a really simple question about buttons, but I must ask it because it is really flummoxing me:

Even when I design the "hit" state of my buttons to completely cover the button, it doesn't seem to line up. The problem seems especially bad if there is a text label on the button. My usual hierarchy is to put the sound on the bottom layer, then the background, then the text label on top. (Straightforward, right?) In the "hit" state, I usually do not have a frame on the text layer and simply scale the background to, say, 150%, but either the hit state doesn't line up or else the hit state exists everywhere except where there is text, even if I don't have a frame on the text layer. Help! It seems so simple, but it is maddening.

Post a simple .fla in MX format ( not MX2003 ) with the problem button.

Ahh. I found the problem. My text was dynamic instead of static. Thanks anyway!
