The of my problems alternates just moved them a little more (along polar angle), regardless of sizing. The other one (with 'center') only positioned the center of a dimension if the edges in that dimension were not being set (and thus not sized in that dimension either).

No. The center property would be ignored because you have 'left' as a non-auto value.

The center property would be ignored because you have 'left' as a non-auto value.
