Found it in an other post, my post was to hasty i guess
10-04-2002 09:25 AM in reply to: fgruber Place the cursor over the about point, right click on it, and choose "Move About Point." Locate the about point on your entity that you want on the grid, and use grid snap to place it there.
Seems to work fine, no near misses on the grid as far as i can see.
Edit: however, ... , it's not what new users (since 2001 approx) expect on an intuitive level. Maybe a little rethink needed?
Re: Grid snap and object moving query
06-20-2001 08:34 PM in reply to: *info Seems to be a constant issue with new users.
It's because the AboutPoint is being moved to a new position, not what the user expects.
If the object is Selected, rightclick and then the AboutPoint is moved, things will behave properly as you would expect. Just make sure to move the AboutPoint to a grid intersection.
Tell the user to get used to the Translate tool. It's much neater and more generally useful.
