Should I center foot bed on board or toe to heelcup center?

Starting from scratch, got my ankle wraps and just pads so I think I got heel lift solved.
Taking some advice here about spending sometime in the living room getting setup.
Got my boots centered in binding, and also boots are centered on board. Question is when you try to center bindings on board are you just centering the foot bed or from toe to heelcup?
Thanks for the help.

Both...you should have a scale reference on the bindings plates

looks like you got some heel overhang. You want to be centering your boot from heel to toe, not your bindings heel cup.

I just measured and have 3/8 on toe and 1/2 on heel. Does it need to be closer to even or more one way or the other?

it needs to be even. Make sure you are measuring your boot, not any of oyur binding. the heel and toe of your boot should be hanging off equal, or as close to equal as you can get. i usually dont measure. i just eyeball it and it seems to work for me.
