If I change -mlabposition(12)- to -mlabposition(1)- I think I get what you are describing. It looks like -mlabposition- uses the bottom of the words as the position reference rather than the middle of the words.Thanks, Lance, I think this is a good solution. Still, I don't understand the logic behind where -mlabposition- places the string. Does it look at the beginning, the middle, or the end of the string? Why do -mlabposition(12)- and -mlabposition(1)- yield such different results? I wonder.
