Hi Scott - wow!
What a surprise, thats just what I was looking for and it works.
It seems to be a new hidden property, not to be edited from the inspectors
palette.
Thanks
Tiemo

Hi Tiemo:

What version of LiveCode?  In LC 6.7 and later you can set the iconGravity
property of a button, but in pre 6.7 versions, icon positioning is somewhat
limited.
