Iso Dimensional measurements

This picture has been around for awhile but I never realized that it was not publicly accessible.  I updated the image with where the origin is located with respect to drawn content and how that relates to the content container.

    Are you still banned from the user group? I am not sure why you were banned. Sorry for my late reply.

    I am wondering, how can I get the width and length in iso as accurately as possible from a movieclip so that I can set width and length correctly?

    Actually I don’t understand what IsoMath.screenToIso(pt) do, How I can place my object in x:50, y:30 in screen coordinates. Is it by converting my pt which is (50, 30) to iso by IsoMath.screenToIso(pt) and do object.moveTo(pt.x, pt.y)??

    IsoDisplayObjects only know iso-spatial coordinates. So if you know where in screen spatial coordinates you’d like an IsoDisplayObject to appear, you need to inform it in the system it understands which is iso. Generally most of your user-interactions will take place going from screen to iso. The only time you’d probably use iso to screen is if you wanted to overlay some GUI element ontop of a given iso object,
