Hi. Do you mean you want to modify the points of a graphic?

This is a return delimited list of ordered pairs, like:


As Mark pointed out, you have an expression that resolves itself before anything else happens. Did you mean:



In any case, the various points have to be two integers separated by a comma and delimited by returns. Your original string had three items in it, the middle item being evaluated arithmetically. Another way to look at this is that you needed four items.

The documentation says that you can add points. If I do:
put 10,10 - 5,5
I get 10,5,5

This is pretty useless.
