The center of the coordinate space is 500,500. Each symbol is positioned by the top, left corner of the symbol image. http://signpuddle.net/wiki/index.php/MSW:Script_Layout | |S14c10 | (503,454) | S14c18 | (472,463) | | -------------+------------ | |S2ea08 | (513,501) S2ea18 | (481,511) | | S2fd00 | (494,540) | Max | (528,546) To create the FSW string, several steps are required. 1) create a 2-dimensional arrangement of symbols 2) determine the center of the cluster 3) reposition the symbols around the center 4) preprocess the maximum coordinate What steps would you like me to explain more -Steve
