MOVE iMATE GLYPH WHERE I WANT...

Is it possible to move my imate glyph where I want it to go yet?  I have checked all of the old posts and haven't found a solution aside from trying the yabbadabbado technique (which didn't work).  Is there an update to access the hidden registry?  Is there something I am missing with moving my glyph where I want?

 

To let you know where my mind is, I am trying to position two objects.  I have working composite iMates already on these objects that work and reflect a different component connection.  I have a work point on each object where I want the connection to be.  On my original composite iMates, using this work point is good, but on my new iMate composites, I want to provide offsets from one planar surface.  When I add the iMate to the plane in question, it shoots my iMate glyph in a place where I don't want it and can't use it as a connection point (like on the other composite iMates which use a iMate right on the work point).  Does anyone have advice?  I feel comfortable with iMates, my composites i already have in place work on multiple components and if I could move the glyph where I want would solve a lot of problems...Thanks in advance.

One of our customers has problems selecting the right iMates, because the glyph positions are too close together.
If these glyph positions could be "relaxed" and dragged to a more convenient spot, that would be a great help.
