I put all required instances outside of the layout and use the system action: "create object" "on start of layout" (on a layer at a position x,y) to assign the position to the instances in the game.
Strangely, if I request the position then, the instances still have x,y from outside the layout and not the new position I've assigned?!
Is this a bug or do I have an error in reasoning?
Thanks a lot!
