door ID problem

Recommended Posts


I am having a problem with id tags. when I click near the door and then on the door to assign an id, the actual tag ends up 'miles' away off my screen and I can't find it unless I turn on "show id leader". Then I can move it into the correct location. In the last hour however, I can no longer move the tag, only resize the whole thing, door, wall and tag. Not particularly useful. Any thoughts!?

Try resetting your origin to the center of the drawing area. Do this by double-clicking on the little square at the intersection of the rulers, and click 'set origin to drawing center" in the dialog that comes up.

See if that clears up the problem.

Hi Robert,

Could this be related to the problem that we can't check the position of a PIO from inside the PIO? The function Get Origin, returns the position of the PIO, instead of the User Origin.

I really hope this gets fixed.
