object move symbol location

What governs the location/distance from the object of the "object move symbol" when an item is selected?  See attached image.  I have selected the blue view reference text but the four way arrow/move symbol is way below it.  This isn't using the move command.  The arrows can be hard to find in a crowded sheet if it's very far from the item selected.

 

For reference I have added an image showing the location of the object move symbol for a text item.  It's in the upper left corner of the text outline.

The view reference entity has that "issue", that the insertion point is away from the reference, and that distance changes as per the scale of the view.

How do you control the insert point location on a family?

Hi. To do that, all you need to do is pin two intersecting reference planes and check the Defines Origin checkbox in the instance properties of both these planes.
