Default ...beat to death...


I don't really want to beat our conversation to death on CenterX and TopY, because I understand your reasoning completely.

When dealing with Text, CenterX works as desired as long as the alignment is set to match. At this point I don't even care why something worked in B6 but is off in the Gold, but what is needed is a consistant and reliable way of setting the top of an Ascending character at an exact location. What happened with one piece of code, text was set to have the ascender be at exactly 1/2 inch below the top of the page and it worked fine. For some reason in the gold it was no longer the case, but was 1/2 inck higher with 72 point type making it partly off the page. Who knows maybe my calculations were wrong, but I didn't touch the DLL between version change.

I haven't been on your site much, but probably should because I know I can learn some things from the master of the masters. I consider myself pretty good at work arounds and have found them for the problems I mentioned and I know you have your hands full, but I would like to see this happen. It's an important thing in the screen printing industry, especially fitting text to the bottom of a circle. Again in the gold the text fitting with ascender aligning at the bottom of the circle was off and I didn't use CenterX or TopY to calculate the positioning. In 12 using PlaceOnOtherSide worked great, but seems non functional in X3. Haven't tried it in the Gold Version.

Hope I didn't offend you, I was just having a bad day.
