Now it’s time for some ShapeSheet-ing! Since we’ve already determined where the locations of the speakers should fall, let’s set the position of the circles by setting the formulas in their PinX and PinY cells… Since we set formulas in ShapeSheet cells, it would be nice to have one in front of us before we go any further.

It happens that the cell is in a row of the page's shapesheet rather than a shape's shapesheet but the basic syntax is similar. Replace "ThePage" with the reference to your shape. If your control shape on Page-1 is "Sheet.3" and it has the same shape data that I used for Page-1 in my example the formula becomes
