Hello,

It would be useful to be able to define an anchor point relative to another anchor point:

@startuml
clock clk with period 1
binary "enable" as EN
concise "dataBus" as db

@0 as :start
@5 as :en_high 
@10 as :en_low
@en_high-2 as :EnHighMinus2
@:start
EN is low
db is "0x0000"

@:en_high
EN is high

@:en_low
EN is low

@:EnHighMinus2
db is "0xf23a"

@:en_high+6
db is "0x0000"

Actually, it's possible, but the syntax is slightly different.

@startuml
clock clk with period 1
binary "enable" as EN
concise "dataBus" as db

@0 as :start
@5 as :en_high 
@10 as :en_low
@:en_high-2 as :EnHighMinus2
@:start
EN is low
db is "0x0000"

@:en_high
EN is high

@:en_low
EN is low

@:EnHighMinus2
db is "0xf23a"

@:en_high+6
db is "0x0000"

Thanks for the answer.

I do a proposal to add this case in the "Anchor Points" sample
