Huh. Apparently the formatting got messed up. Each line that talks about "formatting" is supposed to be a numbered list. The one that currently (to me) shows up as number 1 at the end is supposed to be number 4. Sorry about that; not sure what happened. It looked right when I was typing it up. And I can't edit it to make it look cleaner, either. Here is the list again, and hopefully the numbers will show up correctly this time.

- Does the number line always begin in cell 1 or is it dependent on the context/exercise material? For Example, would the number line in the attached problem begin in cell 1 or cell 3 (for the runover)?
- Can a number line be placed in numeric passage mode to reduce the length/keep on the same braille line?
- Is there a required number of horizontal line indicators between an arrow or a crossing vertical line?
- What do we do when a number line requires multiple braille lines? (Example, if we have a -40 to 40 number line where we need to be able to see every tick.) Sometimes we can get it to fit as a graphic, but I've seen a lot of number lines that are too big for a horizontal or a vertical graphic to work.

And an addition to question 1: If the number line is dependent on the runover, can we adjust the starting point to fit a slightly-too-long line on a single braille line? (So, a problem similar to the example might start in cell 1 or 2 instead of having the final item on a second line.)
