It's surprisingly often that I receive drawings from collaborators where their drawing seems to have little or no relationship to the internal or vectorworks origin.
When my work is for the stage, my preference is always that the plaster line, proscenium line, firecurtain line or similar be zero, zero. When the job is in a tent, a site location or hotel room, I will want to place everything in relation to a room element, landmark or site-specific item.
I find it a trial to turn everything in the incoming drawing on, unlock the locked items and then move it all to where it belongs.
It's possible that I can't see the forest for the trees here but…
I wish I could tell VW to move the drawing from a click onscreen (or other specified point) to the Vectorworks Origin.
