How to Set Object Position in Flash



In addition to the Selection tool, you can also position objects on the stage with the Align panel and the Properties panel.


Step One

Add a rectangular object to the workspace with the Rectangle tool (r key).

Step Two

With the rectangle selected, alter its location by changing the x and y values in the Properties panel (Cmd/F3 (PC-Ctrl/F3)). The x=0 and y=0 point is the upper left corner of the stage.

Step Three

Open the Align panel by choosing Window > Align ((Cmd/k (PC-Ctrl/k)).

Step Four

The To Stage icon should be medium-gray.

Step Five

Click the various icons to align your object to the stage center or one of the edges.

Registration Point

Whenever you specify the object location in the Properties panel, the location is set based on the object's registration point. By default the registration point is in the upper left corner of the object.

If you have a Symbol or Drawing Object, double-click the object and move the object to reposition the registration point.
