[Pro] Rollover fits

I’ve done these before with no issue but this time it’s a different approach and as a result, I’m getting resized/distorted graphics instead of rollovers.

Simple setup - two graphics boxes with text only. Two different fonts, and the boxes have to be offset from one another and different sizes for this to work. (But they can/do overlap) One is text and the other is a simple bullet point that should become visible on rollover. Easy right? ha ha

So I group them, lock them individually, apply the action to the group and select the bullet item to show on mouse over only. When I preview this - the rollover works but the whole graphic becomes different/distorted size, and moves out of position.

I tried switching off combine graphics on each of the 2 graphics texts boxes, but the problem with that is, then the group doesn’t see the layers in the rollover action.

I’ve also set this up several times and had several different but similar results…strange.

Any clues?

(My Master page has a graphic for a BG FWIW)
(Another FWIW, FW crashed earlier…no warning, just crashed but I restarted it back up a hour or so later.)

Apparently some of this has to do with changing aspects of the boxes after/while building the rollover - things just begin to get confused in there somehow. Even something as simple as changing the text can make it act strange - changing the size of the graphic text box after the rollover is built also really confuses it.

Even if one trashes the rollover, unlocks, ungroups and goes back to just two boxes, rebuilding it was not resolving the issues - however - deleting them and finally starting over completely with fresh boxes seemed to work out for me - example here - (still need to work on alignment/spacing)

Another thing I wanted to try was flipping the nav bar 90 degrees CCW to run up the LH side of the page, (to match my “home” flash page, but apparently that can’t be done all at once. The last time I tried rotating one single rollover group is when FW5 crashed. :-/
