Manual - Error in Meters > General Options text?

philmate48 » November 13th, 2016, 9:21 pm

First, a provisional apology if I've got the bull by the tail. I'm a real newbie, loving it but still puffing my way up the learning curve.

See Manual (both 3.3 and 4.0 Beta) > Meters > General Options > Options > X, Y:

The following appears:
Specifies the x (horizontal) and y (vertical) position of the meter in pixels relative to the top-left edge of the skin.
...
Examples:
X=150 : Meter begins 150 horizontal pixels from the right edge of the skin window.
Y=75 : Meter begins 75 vertical pixels from the top edge of the skin window.
Shouldn't the first example read "X=150 : Meter begins 150 horizontal pixels from the left edge of the skin window"? Not a very major point, but it threw me off the scent for a while. If I'm wrong, please accept my apology and be kind to me.

No you are quite right....

Fixed, thanks for reporting!

By my reckoning, JSM, you read my post and corrected the error in less than 3 minutes. Wow!
