Hi. I created a template and used it to create a project but have added so many during the project and want to save this project as a template. I have already made a save as, detached from central, and deleted the project leaving the layers and families and drafting views and title block as part of the template. But now I want to return the base point to the 0,0 because I moved it during the project. The problem is I can't find it. I am using shared coordinates.


How do I locate the origin in this case and is it enough to just change the coordinates back to 0,0.

Should the project coordinates be the origin.


I would appreciate any ideas.

If you activate "Reveal Hidden Elements", you will be able to see the symbols illustrated below (which are overlapping in a normal project):




You can find additional information in WikiHelp: Shared coordinates, Project base point and Survey point
