What zone do you want it in, babe?

It would be like with DESK DAY in zone 2 at layer 0

(example since I don’t know where you want to place it)

In what zone do you need it?
If your overlay doesn’t appear on zone you need it even you write near your overlay, try to add 320 for each extra zone than 1 to x from shifts values.

When I put my overlay near background name if I want to put it in other zone than 1 on:
@overlay OVERLAY shifts to x y
on x I add for every zone 320

Example:
If I need my overlay in zone 3, I put it with help of Directing Helper where I need to be, then I add to x value from shifts 640 (320 for zone 2+320 for zone 3).

Sorry if I’m not very good to explain better.:see_no_evil:

Hi, test your overlay out, get it to the position you want, click on Overlay Helper, click on your overlay, copy the coordinates and paste them here so we can help you :wink:
