bogus grid

QC7 Millennium...

I selected a larger paper size and moved my drawing to give myself some more
room for expansion. Now the drawing entities don't line up with the grid.

How did that happen and how do I get everything back on the grid? I NEVER
take grid snap off.

David,

When you moved the drawing, the About Point was geometrically centered. What you
have to do is MAKE SURE that the About Point is on the grid before you move the
drawing.

Just select the entire drawing (maybe [Ctrl+A] will do it), find the About
Point, Right-Click on it and choose Move About Point.

Move it to a grid intersection or an entity EndPoint. Then hold the cursor over
the new AboutPoint position and drag the drawing where you want with the Grid
Snap active.
