How can I center a letter on a face, with Geometry Nodes? As shown on the picture, I like to place randomly a collection of letters on a mesh object - f.e. on a icosphere. Everything is fine and works but the letters are not 100% centered.

I don't find my mistake - is there anyone with a idea what could cause this? Happy about all help 😁

To instantiate letters in the center of faces of another mesh, you can use the following setup:

Since the node String to Curves outputs single instances, you have the possibility to move their position to their center right at the beginning before instantiation.

You can do this by subtracting the position of the individual letters from their Pivot Point.
