Iv found when you move all items lets say the one side of the page they dont stay there, either when you reload or export your picture they will reset and the exported picture wont have the move either it will all be centered. Its just a little issue because its the easiest way to move an entire character to where you want him once your done making him.
I think the program was designed like that deliberately, it’s not a bug. Going to Headshot or Widescreen view resets it as well. If you want to move an entire character, move it in chunks: Head, Body, Feet…
The best way to get around this is to make one character at a time and then put them into a program like paint.net(FREE). If I remember right you can put a transparent background behind your character and it will be like that in paint.net. I believe that for there contest Jeff doesn’t mind you putting them together in another program, he just don’t want you to do anything to the character in another program. I have made many comic book covers this way.
I maybe a little off topic but I no longer use the export feature I size my guy the way I want to see him and when The character is complete ,I take a screenshot in wide sceen,place it in paint(ctrl-v)and then cut and repaste to a new file in paint.I save as png. file and upload to my thread .Hope that will help!
