Wasn't sure where to log this, apologies if its in the incorrect place.
If you use the Panel_borderSkin found in the skinning templates for Flash the Panel will look the incorrect size when scaled in the final application.
This is because a shadow has been added in Flash as a graphic, which is them included in the measurement. The shadow starts at x -1, which throws the scaling out.
If a shadow is required it should be added as a filter (as this is then not included in the measurement).
I have attached an example where I have extended Panel to draw a vertical line at the left and right of its bounds. 3 instances of this extended Panel are attached to the stage each with a different borderSkin applied. The are from top to bottom.
1. The default skin found in the Flash templates that includes a shadow, which makes the measurement incorrect.
2. The skin found in the Flash templates where I have removed the shadow, making the measurement correct.
3. The default Flex Halo skin, with correct measurement.
