You can move the points A, B and C (click on the point and drag it).
Press the keys “+” and “−” to zoom in or zoom out the visualization window and use the arrow keys to translate it.
You can also construct all centers related with this one (as described in ETC) using the “Run Macro Tool”. To do this, click on the icon _{}, select the center name from the list and, then, click on the vertices A, B and C successively.

Erect a square outwardly from each side of triangle ABC. Let A'B'C' be the triangle formed by the respective centers of the squares. The lines AA', BB', CC' concur in X(485).
