Well I have a problem matching line end with its coordinate. Here's the code:



\put(0,32){\circle{2} }%
\put(260,32){ \circle{2} }%



As you can see the second circle isn't placed at the end of a line despite their coordinates should match. Code is pretty simple yet I can't find the reason why the circle and the line are shifted.

You have a space before the second \circle and this space you should remove. – Przemysław Scherwentke Dec 20 '13 at 16:15

Thank you so much! I can't belive it was so simple :D – Arthur Dec 20 '13 at 16:23

do not use spaces in the argument of \put:


And, by the way, using package pict2e makes sense.
