Good luck Any questions - Post in this Thread & Alley will answer them.
ADDED - Don't use 3D Background. 'Cos if you do, the above Tutorial for positioning PH won't apply. Ie: The Tutorial would apply to positioning the Background & not PH & you would have to use the XYetc Axis arrows (more difficult).
Tutorial is for Single Character only. Multiple Characters are more difficult to do.
