>select "special" tab
>choose superimpose cluster

I don't get a special tab when i right click the only options are properties, flip horizontal/vertical and two save options I think that it has something to do with the behind the scenes factors and labels but for the life of me i can't figure it out.

mmmm, this could be a limitation of version 5. However, colleagues of mine have never mentioned this.

All I can suggest (as I have never used V5) is to:

a) seek out a copy of the manual;

0r

b) email the PRIMER group - the are REALLY helpful and do not mind emails about their software. Really, their support group is brilliant.
