Using Jump to a given position you can place the instance in a particular position. You simply specify the X coordinate and Y coordinate, and the instance is placed with its reference point on that position. If you check the Relative box, the position is relative to the current position of the instance. This action is often used to continuously move an instance. In each step we increment the position a bit.
This will summon object obj_woodlover on obj_wood's X and Y points.
The action_move_to(x_coord,y_coord) function does this in a piece of code.
action_move_to(0,-5); //move upwards
