    Hello I'm new to Indesign and I'm having some troubles. I have text buttons on my page, they're animated as appear on page loaded.
    Everything's fine to this point. When I click one of them, on the next page, my text buttons change their places like 1 pixel up. This is a serious issue for me right now. When I export my document as swf this situation keeps my mind busy. How can I avoid this? Please help...
    P.S. I checked their location, x-y coordinates,they're same on every page. But why do they move up?

    I would try deleting the buttons and try recreating them. There is a chance that you might have included the information on the other page as a part of your buttons which might be causing your problem.

    If this doesn't solve your problem, can you upload the .swf & html file so I can see what you are talking about?

    I just downloaded and looked at your file. I was able to reproduce your problem with the file that you sent. However, I did not have your font so I replaced it with another font (minion pro). After replacing the font, I tested the file and worked as expected.

    I am not sure if the only problem with the file was the font, but for me switching it out solved that problem.

    I hope that helps!

    It's very strange for me, I used Helvetica font.As you adviced I tried Minion and it works perfect. But Arial has this problem too. But anyway thanks a lot. I'm going to swith my character :)

    Part of the reason might be that your text frames are so tight to the words. I don't know what that would be causing the problem. If you really want to use Helvetica, try creating outlines on the text or increasing the size of the frame slightly. Conversely, you could shrink the text as well.

    Good Luck!
