I am just starting out in flash, and I am currently making some simple animations with text.
I took a static text element, broke it apart, distributed the letters to layers, then inserted 2 keyframes (one for the beginning and one for the end). I then scaled the first down to 0% in the Transform panel, and made it a motion tween to grow into it's original height and width. When I play it back, the text grows, but then jumps over to the left quite a bit to achieve the final frame, the second keyframe...?
I tried moving over the second keyframe to match the end of the "growth", but that just made the original text move over as well.
It is quite annoying. This should be a simple way to make my text grow, but it ends up looking like I messed up the finale of the effect.
