I'm using characters as buttons.

I'm using layers instead of states because I only want two "states:"

1. Selected (Colour)

2. Not-selected (Grey-ed out)

I have the characters on layers, and I cannot get the characters (from one layer to the next) to align in preview/publish view. They align in the .story file, but when previewing, they are not.

FYI - This does not happen when aligning anything other than characters (Ie. text boxes, images, shapes)...

I have tried compensating and moving the characters over slightly, but it still does align in preview.

I've attached a story file with the characters (and all else removed for simplicity).

Any suggestions welcome.

Many Thanks!!

Thanks Jose. I've tried and they seem to be lined up, but in Preview they are not.

Sorry, misread your post. You can create states for color and b/w images by using the edit states option. Then use triggers to change the states. You can do this in a single layer. You already have the normal state for the character as b/w. Go to edit states, choose selected, format the picture back to color, choose done editing states.

Edit: Wow.. just realized, the position moved slightly with the state change on a single layer as well. Sorry - I don't know why.
