I am relatively new to RPG Maker MV so I apologize if this is a dumb question. In the picture above, I have taken the shelf on the left and added it as an event icon as a single img so I could have an event to move it and reveal a secret passage way behind. This all works properly except I cannot figure out how to get the shelf to line up. I am probably explaining this badly but the picture explains it perfectly, I would just like it all to line up normally. Any suggestions? Much appreciated

Events are automatically given a 4-pixel offset to make them look more realistic when walking around on terrain (think Characters and such). Obviously you don't want objects like this bookshelf to be offset 4 pixels up, and the way to specify that is in the event graphic's filename: If the first character is a ! (or the first character is a $ and the second is a !), then the 4-pixel offset will not be used (and it will line up with the rest of the bookshelf).

So if it wouldn't ruin the display of any of the other event graphics in that file, you should just rename that graphic file to include a ! at the beginning. If it would mess up some of your other graphics, then make a copy of that graphic file and put a ! at the beginning of the name of the copy, and use that copy to show this bookcase graphic.
