Tom - thanks for your question. I am going to move it to our IC Design community which is a more appropriate product area for your question. The Members Resources area is typically the place to ask general community questions or offer suggestions. thanks.
The the nature of your question can most effectively be addressed by submitting an SR on SupportNet.
My understanding is these alignment special characters will only be applicable when you have more than one line in your string as they are alignment in reference to the first line.
I am not allowed to enter the page in the link you send me.
I could be wrong but is center, left and right not referring to how the text is aligned with respect to the center point you define. For instance if you do the following:
LCell_MakeLogo(cellCurrent, Label, 40000, SourceDrain, LFALSE, LFALSE, LFALSE, 0, -25000, LFALSE, LFALSE, LFALSE, NULL, NULL, NULL, NULL);
LPoint center = LPoint_Set(0,0);
LCircle_New(cellCurrent, SiO2ResEtch, center, ResDia/2 );
You will end up with a circle centered around 0,0 and some text which starts at 0,-25000, see attached picture.
What I want is to have the text centered around 0,-25000.
BTW using \n to get at new lines does not work for me either.

In order to submit a Support Request (SR) and get technical questions answered by Mentor support you must be under a current support contract. If you would like to re-instate your support coverage, please contact your local sales representative.
I don't believe there is a direct way to center the text other than to adjust your coordinate location to take into affect your text size and number of characters in your string. If you are under a support contract and submit an SR, we can assist you with how get started on this.
