touch position way off

Hi there!

so I want to spawn something where I press on the screen (touch screen game) but when I’m pressing in the position area of around 1500 - 1000 but it spawns in around 350 - 557 give or take a few

code -

func _unhandled_input(event):
if event is InputEventScreenTouch and event.is_pressed():
	var new_instance = PopUp.instance()
	new_instance.position = event.position

when I print the event.position it does say around that 355 to 500 with some offset of where my press was

I’ve had some problems like this before and I set the scale of the nodes to 1-1 but they all already were so I’m at a loss any ideas?

Big thanks ahead of time!

What happens if instead of this:

new_instance.position = event.position

You do this:

new_instance.global_position = event.position

Hi, thanks for the response!

that doesn’t fix the issue (from what I can see) because event.position is still off by some 1000+ position . actually, I think I found the issue but I don’t know how to fix it, the position is going on the screen, not the world, and If I try to use event.global_position
it throws me an error Invalid get index 'global_position' (on base: 'InputEventScreenTouch').

big thanks again!
