Notes:

  • Some callers say File To A Wave when the call ends in Parallel Waves, and File To A Line otherwise. Other callers always say File To A Line, no matter what the ending formation will be.

Variation: From a Butterfly, the caller can say Centers (Start) File To A Line in which case the Centers do two Phantom Column Circulates and all adjust to end in adjacent Lines.

Magic File To A Line [C2V]: Ends Spread apart as Centers do two Phantom Column Magic Column Circulates; all adjust to end in adjacent Lines.
