When I use this, the tween functions as expected:


    TweenMax.to('#myElement', 0.6, {left:400});
The following, however, has no effect:
    TweenMax.to('#myElement', 0.6, {transformOrigin:'left top', x:400});
This is true in Google Chrome and iPad Safari.  Any ideas?

That code works great for me - could you post a codepen or jsfiddle that clearly demonstrates the issue? Sometimes it's best to see it in context - maybe there's something else going on in your JS or CSS. Is anyone else having a similar problem?

That's strange I just tested this in Chrome and works fine:

It would be very helpful if you fork it and change it to the scenario you have in order to get a better idea of what could be the issue.

Is it possible #myElement is display:inline (could just be a span, for instance) with position:relative (position:absolute would force block display and certainly work with transforms)?


Inline elements won't accept transforms at all, but positioned (i.e. not static, the default for all elements) elements with display:inline do allow left/top/etc adjustments.
