Positioning of SWF on MX Stage Loading in Wrong Place/Misaligned. Problem X, Y Coordinates? ZIP File


I think the parameters that were set for the menu position are causing the problem...

So, I’m working on the site, revise and publish a few pages. Then, here comes my problem. All the links in the menu go to a working swf that loads in the main mc. However, because I’ve published each of those swf’s (products, team, media, whatever) on a stage with the dimensions of the entire site, 800x446 -- and the mc in which it loads, the same size… as the entire site…  

it creates a problem where the swf loads. They are pushed to one side of the movie, leaving a bunch of white space on the left hand side. I've now just moved everything over to the left on the 800x446 stage in MX of each swf to compensate for the unwanted space/misalignment. In doing this, though, each swf that loads into the main mc (products, contact, whatever) is either misaligned and pushed to one side, or in the right place depending upon whether or not they're loaded from the links in the menu or the links on the bottom navigation.

(I apologize if that's too confusing, just read below and check out the zip)

Click on the links on the bottom nav (skip over products) and you'll see everything's in place. BUT, click on products, the menu comes up, click on the menu, guys tees or whatever, then click back onto the bottom nav again and all the swf's are misaligned... that's the problem.

Here are the files that I'm work on:


I'm using MX.

I hope there's a simple solution to this? Please suggest what I could do to fix it.

I couldn't figure it out using x y parameters...

Everything else works fine... I just need know why is showing up over to the side like that?

Thank you, your help is much appreciated!
