Here's the problem with MWE:

  FlipView[Framed /@ {100, 1}, Alignment -> Center]
  ImageSize -> {100, 150}, Alignment -> Center]

enter image description here

I find the following behaviour unexpected, undesired, possible bug:

  • while mouse key is pressed now visible next object left edge is aligned to current object left edge (invisible alread). But it should not be dependent and be aligned as the options are stated.

  • after releasing the mouse key it is aligned correctly according to options.

This makes horrible jumping each time.

Reproduced on:

WinXP V9.01

OS X V9.00

Win7 V9.01

Quick fix is to add additional Pane

 FlipView[Pane[Framed[#], 50, Alignment -> Center] & /@ {100, 1}, 
          Alignment -> Center]
 , ImageSize -> {100, 150}, Alignment -> Center]

But the issue is to be remembered.
