Feature request: Coordinate based animation

Aug 31, 2017

Please implement a coordinate based animation system when using the Motion Path feature. It is extremely frustrating trying to line up objects, especially when using motion paths.

Implementing an x and y coordinate system for all objects would be a vast improvement on the general snapping options available.

Hi Bobby,

I know I've seen a few discussions about exact X,Y coordinates - and that's something we've shared with our Product team as a feature request! 

We're continuing to add lots of new things to Articulate 360, but  in case you're curious how we figure that all out, here's how we manage all of the ideas we receive!

Also, keep an eye on the “What’s New” page for details and information about the latest and greatest!

Short answer, Yes. Aligning objects is helpful but requiring a user to use one object, just to position another object is a really convoluted way to go about it.

If I have an object that always needs to be in the same space, or I need to place an object exactly where a previous object was, then using the X,Y coordinates steam lines things a lot.
