Topic: shifts all my content on the main stage

I am loading the postcard viewer as an external swf into a mc. The problem is that is shifts all my content on the main stage as soon as it loads.

Re: shifts all my content on the main stage

Hi Apache,
I have the same problem. And although I know why it happens I don't quite know how to solve it (other than the obvious solution).

What happens is that the viewer (postardviewr or the simpleviewer) when loading the external SWF it seams it doesn't read the Stage size of the SWF but instead it looks at everything happening in the SWF timeline.
So, if you have (in the external SWF) elements outside of the stage, the Viewer will see them and will squeeze the total size when loading the external SWF in.
Even if you try to mask the elements that go off the stage.

The obvious solution is to try and keep everything inside the Stage (in the external SWF) so it displays correctly when loaded into the Viewer.

I hope someone out there has a better solution,
because I would like to use the SimpleViewer to display Flash animations and I can't because it loads the external SWFs with weird sizes!  :cry:

By the way, I use the SimpleViewer 1.7.
