While not immediately apparent, this can currently be done with the Move By Points tool from the Basic tool palette. Make sure you're in Move mode, and that Retain Original Object is turned off.




Have the object you wish to move selected. With the Move By Points tool, click the reference point on your object that you want to move, then hit tab 5 times until you're in the X field of the floating data palette, type in your X coordinate, then hit tab again to enter the Y coordinate. Then hit enter twice.




(You can ignore the acquisition hints and cursor position; the tool will just move you reference point to the coordinates you typed in.)

Or you can just type the coordinates into the OIP.

That would work well for circles, rectangles etc. but for irregular objects where one specific point of the object needs to be at a specific coordinate the Move by Point and tabbing to the absolute coordinate is basically the only easy way apart from moving it using pan and zoom to the correct location.
