I have character symbol for my point feature class from ESRI AMFM Water - Unicode 117 with offset Y:10,7 and size 36. At that moment it is placed perfectly as it is shown on a first printscreen. However when I change the size it gets shifted. I hope my printscreens represent perfectly what I mean. Do you how to change the way my points are resized?

I work with ESRI 9.3.1.enter image description here

    Looks like you have to update your Y offset value. – artwork21 Aug 12 '13 at 12:18
  • True I should however I don't want to that. Why my symbols aren't resizing basing on the buttom of my symbol. That element of my point is it centroid. – duszza Aug 12 '13 at 12:26

It has been a long time since I used ArcGIS 9.3 but I think this advice using a 10.2 screenshot and marker should still apply.

Open the Symbol Property Editor on your symbol and make sure that, like the symbol below, both layers originate on the cross-hairs.
