```Thanks Michael,

I have understood that the centre is located by considering the
distance in this sense: in the case [0,10], the axis varies from -10
to 10 and in the  [100, 200] case goes from -200 to 200. Some ideas of
symmetry...

Thanks for your attention. I will wait some hours to write to package author.

Cheers.
