val string_of_position : position -> string

Produce a debug string of a position

type orientation =
| Horizontal
| Vertical
| VerticalDown

Orientation of the string on the page

val calculate_position : bool -> float -> (float * float * float * float) -> orientation -> position -> float * float * float

calculate_position ignore_d w (xmin, ymin, xmax, ymax) orientation pos calculates the absolute position of text given its width, bounding box, orientation and position. If ignore_d is true, the distance from the position (e.g 10 in TopLeft 10) is ignored (considered zero).
