    Charles these are my thoughts

    left – ҧ
    right – ҧ
    above – ҧ
    below – ҧ IMHO for "below" ҧҧ is far more often used that ҧ
    far left – ش
    far right –ش
    above left –ҧ
    above right – ҧ
    below left – ҧҧ
    below right –ҧҧ
    preceding page - ˹ҡ͹
    next page –˹ҶѴ



    I have seen some writers use the word (hand) eg ҧҧ We might say in English " Below, right hand side"

    Thanks, Surawut...great vocabulary.

    Ѵ is a new word for me. How is it most commonly used? How does it compare to saying that something is ҧ or ԴѺ ??

    Khun Pailin khrab.

    Ѵ Means the adjacent, adjoining, next or the succeeding one, almost always used with .....Ѵ

    ҧ also means next to or alongside

    But in in my experience a sign indicating for instance that a cash register, a bank teller window, or similar is closed will nearly always say "karunaa chai chong thad pai"
    سͧѴ (Please use the next one)

    ԴѺ Strictly speaking means to be trapped or stuck, but I've often heard it used as you suggest.
    Դѹ however, can mean "next or adjoining"

    Also means "next " or "coming up" even.
    eg on the MRT Undergound the female voice says;
    Satthanii tor pai satthaanii Huay Khwaang ʶҹյʶҹ¢ҧ " Next station Huay Khwaang"
