Hi Sarcastic Horse,

It sounds like you are looking for a way to put a centered String on
drawing. You can just use the textAnchor property to make it centered, as

	String(10, 20, 'xyz', textAnchor = 'middle')

Platypus is worth learning for if you need arrange multiple charts and text
on a page and build multi-page documents with cover pages, etc.
