I use MXM skinner to make all my skins, and I love it, but I have this problem that has been haunting me since I started using the program. I dont know if im doing something wrong, or if its a glitch in the software (most likely its me).

Whenever Im making a skin in skinner, all the text elements, preview videos, game icons, menu...etc are lined up perfectly. But then when I save the skin and view it on my xbox, all the things that were lined up perfectly in MXM skinner on my PC, arent lined up at all when I view them on my xbox. All my menu's, text, video...etc will all be way off from where I put it. Included some pics of what im talking about. 1 pic is from skinner (all elements straight) and then I took a screenshot of that exact skin running on my xbox (elements all out of wack).

If anyone has some advice, tips for me, so that I could prevent this.... it would be greatly appreciated. thanks

From what I gather, your overlay is a PNG. The (sorta) bug in skinner is that it doesn't show PNGs stretched. However, it DOES put a <Scaling X="true" Y="True"/> for every image.
Then MXM shows it stretched. That's probably why everything is off.
To fix it, make sure the image element's dimensions are the same as the picture's actual dimensions.
