Talking Sliding screendoor screen replacement

What part of the door should you start at when installing new screen. Then go to where and then where by pulling on what side or corner?????

bottom or top, doesn't matter, to start
when starting ( with spline started ) pull straight out with left hand and roll with right hand ( given your right handed LOL ) watch the holes in the screen when you start out, you want them to be straight as possible.Do the same thing on the first side, when you get to the top pull the screen lightly out while rolling. Now the tricky part, when you roll the LAST side place your hand on the INSIDE of the frame pressing down lightly, while you roll the last side. This helps keep you from bowing the frame and keeping your screen door straight.

Hope you understand what I'm say, it's easier showing than telling.

Oh and lay your screen to start as square as possible
