Just to follow-up on this. One thing I failed to mentioned was that I recently copied over a symbol from a different project before activating advanced layers.

Hi.

 

Do you have a camera on stage? If you do it may be the cause of the position shift.

 

If not, do you mind recording a video showing the issue? Because I cannot reproduce this problem on my side.

JC

For some reason, the symbol from another project was causing everything to move around if I copied it over before activating advanced layers in my current project. So, I'm guessing it was because of the symbol's relatively based on the external project. And I'll leave it at that. Thanks for your willingness to help.
