Anbody else had this problem?

I load all my objects, in layout. I resize the objects and then position them. As I add a light into the scene, all my objects slide to the center of the grid and everything unfolds to the original size when I first brought them into layout.

I have tried saving the scene and all objects, but when I reopen it, it did not save my changes. Everything goes to the center and I have to resize everything again.

This also happens when I have modeler and layout opened at the same time. When I am changing an object in modeler, then I switch to layout, the changes I made in modeler seem to reset the scene for layout. The scene in layout looks different; every object slided to the
center of the grid and are not in the resized postion that I once had.

I am on a PC with windows ME operating system and I am using Lightwave 7. I do not know if the operating system makes a difference.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated?

You have to set a keyframe to record any changes you make to position, size, etc.
Read up on Keyframes, they are the key to animation.
