Multiple instances of subtitles on one screen

Hi.
At first, a little word about, about my project.
I’m working on jitter patch that is triggering some words via midi note numbers.
The first attempt were based on 6 jit.qt.movie objects joined in one matrix like this made in jitter tutorial 16. (if you need it, i can post it)
But for now i just reached jitter tutorial 29, and decided to make my patch based on jit.lcd with using alpha channel.
The problem is, that i understand how to make multiple jit.lcd matrices with text, but i do not really understand how to join them into one matrix and also what is a better way to add a black background.
Would be thankful for any help.
Here is what i made with alpha

Another question appeared.
Is there any way to make operations in LCD like "align to center". Or there is only one way which will correct x and y coordinates when i’m changing font size?
