Hello Izabell,

Yes, you can do this.  You just need to add an StringAttribute to the 
port called "_cardinal".  The value will either be "NORTH", "SOUTH", 
"EAST" or "WEST" which determines which side of the actor the port shows 
up on.  Here's what it will look like in the moml:

<port name="input" class="ptolemy.actor.TypedIOPort">
             <property name="input"/>
             <property name="_cardinal"

In the code it would be something like this:

TypedIOPort ioport = new TypedIOPort(someActor, "input");
StringAttribute sa = new StringAttribute(ioport, "_cardinal");

Hope that helps.
