Hello, i've noticed a persistent problem with groups on loading an animate file. I close and open projects often and over time i've noticed grouped objects not staying in place. You can see in the first image this is how it was saved; but in the second shows how it has been loaded. All the objects have moved in different ways. I have to manually fix this every time.

Over time, my content shifts and if I dont touch groups on other layers and this can be what I come back to:

I can't describe the frustration when I need to make a round of changes and it takes quadruple the time as I have to reposition everything. I've updated everything, reinstalled and these problems persist. This is a huge problem with Animate.

Hi.

 

I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

 

For now, if you're using the latest release, I suggest you to downgrade to a previous version and see what happens.

 

You can also let the team know about it as well:

I hope it helps.

 

Regards,

JC

Animate is an absolute wreck.

Each new version is worse than the previous and it's drowning in hundreds of bugs.

 

Find an old copy of Flash CS5, CS5.5 or CS6 and you will be able to do your work without losing your sanity and your precious time.

You can also try converting each parts of your character(groups) into symbols and see if it fixes your issue. Example: you can try converting the whole character to a symbol or convert the body parts (head,hand,legs..) in to each symbol and see if it works fine.
