A recent post on the forum sparked my interest. It asked how a person could find where the position of a functiod is based on the X-Cell/Y-Cell attribute is as in this example

<Functoid FunctoidID="1" X-Cell="52" Y-Cell="184" Functoid-FID="260" Functoid-Name="Scripting" Label="">

The maximum X-Cell attribute is 98 and the maximum Y-Cell attribute is 418. (Just as a FTY, the reason why it is not an ‘even’ number is because in the grid the border cell is outside of the map bounds)

So if you want to start counting cells, knock yourself out.

A much easier way is to simply add a label to the functoid (of course something unique) and then search the btm file for that unique identifier as in this example (zxcvb)

<Functoid FunctoidID="1" X-Cell="52" Y-Cell="184" Functoid-FID="260" Functoid-Name="Scripting" Label="zxcvb">
