Quick question about Inkscape, the tiled clones dialogue and the coordinate system it uses.

Lets say i clone a square 10 Rows x 10 Columns, with a

Shift Y of 10% per Row and Shift X of 10% per Column.

I also want a stair effect per column of one square:

Shift Y per Column 100 + 10 for the gap compensation = 110%.

It works as expected, but when i look at the coordinate system, i get the impression something is wrong.

[attachment=1118]

Negative displacements are to the left and to the bottom.

[attachment=1120]

By that logic, i should have used:

Shift Y -10% per Row

and

Shift Y -110% per Column

But that gives me something entirely different...

Where is the mistake in my thinking ??

Or is my coordinate system the wrong way around ?
