Default Positioning Item on Conveyor

Hi,

I´m looking for a way to send all arriving Items on a conveyor to a specific Point with their leading edge.
If I´m using EntryTransfers all Items will arrive at the Center and it seems to be not possible to change this position.

Does anybody have a hint, if I missed something?

Maybe you could split the conveyor into two conveyors, where the split is at the point where you want the item's leading edge to enter. Then connect an entry transfer to the front of the conveyor (if an entry transfer is at the beginning of the conveyor, the item's will start with its leading edge at the beginning).
