Hello Anny!
Looking at your attached diagram, the first movement moves toward the  
front right corner (away from you), and the second movement (the last  
movement) moves towards the back right corner (back towards  
you) can tell this by the way the symbol looks. The movement  
that is done second is the one that is on top...the one that has the  
stem line a complete line (one that is not broken). The broken line  
arrow (the one underneath) is done first.

So judging by your words above, you need to rotate that arrow  
combination, so you get the direction you want first and  
second....The combination-arrow is one symbol in the IMWA, and it  
rotates and flops etc...

Val ;-)
