Hi Nasser, The trick is to wrap the position given by the list {side, align} within another list like {{side, align}}, otherwise the the flat list is interpreted as {side(for 1st lbl), side(for 2nd lbl)}. In[1]:= Labeled["1 2 3", "A", {{Bottom, Left}}] Out[1]= 1 2 3 A In[2]:= Labeled["1 2 3", "A", {{Bottom, Right}}] Out[2]= 1 2 3 A Regards, Jean-Marc
