How to measure light with the Canon P light meter

Hi, I just got a nice Canon P with its light meter. While I understand how to set it up (similar to MR4 on Leicas), I find difficult to read the needle. When I point out the subject, there is a reading I cannot read, when I move the camera down to read, the needle has moved. Is there a way to fix the reading like the MR4? Or, do I really have to point the specific area I am metering, or this is one of those wide angle meters that measures, just by pointing in the general direction? I appreciate you sharing your experience with this meter.
