Directing Overlays Glitch

Hey everyone, I am having trouble with directing these overlays. each time I go to the next scene, it glitches. Please help me.

what’s the problem, I’ll be more than happy to help.

I’m doing a texting scene like saige did in her story and every time I remove the overlay for the next scene, it always glitches and goes to the corner for a second.

could i see the coding? :blush:

when you mean it goes to the corner, do it move there or does it just appear there? Only because you may have placed it there unknowingly.

never mind, I accidentally spot directed It in the wrong place. Hope I didn’t disrupt anything XD
