How do I anchor a structure to a POS?

Literally wasted the last two hours trying to anchor a Compression Array to my POS. I've anchored my POS and it's online. I've launched my Compression Array, clicked Anchor and it's showing a green cube in space. I move it about and try to 'Anchor' again, but nope, I get no message or anything. No wonder why people are leaving this game when basic activities are so obtuse and un-intuitive. I've given up. How do I anchor this piece of crap???

move the green cube to the spot you want it then right click on the white directional arrow on the green cube and select "anchor here"

Cheers C.

Rule of EVE: When all else fails, right-click it.

When I first setup a POS, I had the same problem, but figured it out eventually because I knew the rule Blink
[To make matters worse, back then the arrows didn't dynamically resize when you zoomed. That was added in Odyssey.]
