Placement of text with pstext -M
|Target version:||Candidate for next minor release|
There seems to be no way to align the resulting box of pstext -M other than centered on the given coordinate. Sure, I can shift the box using -D[j|J], but there is no "real" aligning like LB (for *L*eft *B*ottom) or CT which I'm trying to achieve. The only thing I get can be seen in the attached screenshot or the sample script.
In the current result, the box is centered on 130/30, but I want alignment of the box as explained in man pstext > textfiles Quote: "The alignment refers to the part of the text string that will be mapped onto the (x,y) point. Choose a 2 character combination of L, C, R (for left, center, or right) and T, M, B for top, middle, or bottom. e.g., BL for lower left."
Is there a way to achieve this? I'm using GMT Version 5.0.1b_r12393 on Ubuntu 12.10 (GNU/Linux 3.5.0-34-generic i686)
All the best,

I had a moment enroute home to look into it. I have to admit that it is a case of PEBCAK. Shame on me. +jCT works as described by you. It seems I was confused with the aligning possibilities in the -F and -M options.
One minor thing I noticed is that it did not take into account the clearance to the surrounding box but aligned it at the text. I countered that with a little -D adjustment.
Thank you for your help and patience.
All the best,

Please close this issue as the program works as desired als long as the human tells it the right things.
May I suggest a little clarification in the man-page for pstext -M that the -F option works on the box and the options in the text-file work on the text in the paragraph itself?
