Out of curiosity I tried to keep the arrows going in the same direction. These were unrectified Brazilian 'proper' 600x 600's and not cut down 1200's........don't know if it made a difference.

I've seen the arrows on the box. It stipulates that the arrows point in the same direction when laying tile. A bit annoying if you have an offcut that fits, but the arrow points in the wrong direction!

Also this week I saw (on a box) a diagram of tiles in brickbond but a big 'X' through the picture. The box also pictured levelling clips (10 per tile!!!).

I’ve noticed it on a few boxes over last couple months. Just got to do as manufacturer recomends
A bit tricky that one, when the customer has got 30 boxes of tiles sitting in the garage,chosen on the basis of 1 sample tile in a shop or even just a picture from the internet, you turn up, and point out the no brickbond logo on the packaging.

It makes a difference if they have been ground like Parallelograms.
