Could anyone PLEASE help me position my newsfeed right where i want it?

Im using this skin called Reload, i decided i didnt want the game icon spot, so i removed it in the skin.xml and edited the image and replaced it with a 'News Feed" spot, and planned on putting the newsfeed right below it.

Anyways i cant figure out how to position it properly. I tried using a skinner propgram to find the right coordinates but after i saved it, it was way up in the top right corner.

Here is the skin right now IPB Image

Would anyone be show me how to properly code in the newsfeed right below the "News Feed" graphic, or point me in the direction of a good program i could use to figure it out?


Thanks

skinning program tells me :

<Text Left="17" Top="417" Align="Left" Color="0xFFFFFFFF" Source="NewsFeed"></Text>

but that doesnt do anything what-so-ever

nevermind, decided i would figure it out even if it took my newbie butt forever.

Through trial and error (and looking at another skin that had a newsfeed in it lol) i came up with:

<Text Top="430" Left="35" Align="Left" Width="190" Scroll="1" Color="0xFFFFFFFF" Font="Common10" ScaleX="100" ScaleY="100" zIndex="8" Source="Newsfeed"></Text>

Its now perfectly aligned under my news feed graphic and looks great!
