Hi,

PICT {#x #y} "Your String" 2 >GROB GOR

does the job.

Step by step:
Place the name PICT on the stack (Menu: PRG->[PICT]->[PICT])

Then enter the pixel coordinates as HEX strings in {}.

After that place your string on the stack,
choose the font size (1 or 2) and perform >GROB (Menu: PRG->[GROB]->[->GRO])

Then perform GOR or GXOR, and take a look at your PICT.

However, this is all explained in the manual, at least in the HP-48 manuals, so maybe you should read it.
