Thanks for replying so quickly, while i waited for any response, I had been busy trying to figure this out. And I think I nailed it. The display had centred into the window finally after trying out various settings on flexible layout and readind the documentation on it.
However, I do have a few questions:
One of my solutions for getting everything anchored within the window in a responsive situation is to group smaller symbols/elements on stage with the background. Then applying left right and top pin with the horizontal/vertical arrows active. While it works for this layout and design, I’m wondering if it would cause problems down the road with other more complicated designs?
When i group the elements as described above, do the separate elements in the group retain its flexible layout properties or does the whole group now acting as one, overwrites them with the setting meant for the group? If this is true, isn’t that a tad counter-productive? Is there a more efficient way to anchor objects on stage with relation to the background?
here is a work in progress I’m sending you.
The link shows the completed work created in adobe animate. I’m trying to reproduce the same job in hype as an exercise to determine if i can use hype just as well as I use Animate if not better (and i’m hoping, way better)
Have a look at how I’ve organised the anchoring. It took me so many actual live tests to know its working. I cannot however show you the live link for the hype version cuz I had to take the test down before my editor notices I’m using live stories to test my work.
Here is the animate version:
It gets pegged into a story package like this:
