Hi guys, anchor points are centralising after adjusting to the new position. I didn't have that issue before, is it the new update or maybe I'm doing something wrong?

Hi mate, From the video it seems that your 'objects' are just raw shapes. Raw shapes do not have Transformation points.Those need to be at least Drawing Objects to retain some position of a T Point, but ideally they should be Symbols. Here is more info:http://flash-powertools.com/understanding-symbol-registration/http://flash-powertools.com/character-rigging-for-flash-animation/ Hope this helps!

Raw shapes do not have Transformation points.

 

They do, but they're temporary. The Free Transform tool will display a transformation point for a shape that you can move and rotate around, etc, but as soon as you click away from the shape the transformation point reverts to center.

Yes, you're correct, Clay. That's what I meant, but did not word it well.

Works perfectly, I was pretty sure I marked those as symbols but apparently not, that was the issue. Thanks!
