insertion point symbol

Question

Hi,

 

Is the insertion point of symbols broken? Whenever I create a symbol and I chose the insertion point somewhere in the middle of the symbol, VW just ignored this and takes the bottom leftmost point as the insertion point. When I edit the symbol I see that the zero point of the symbol is on the insertion point I had picked. But VW seems to ingore this when inserting the symbol.

 

Example of symbol:

When inserting, the leftmost bottom point is used as insertion point:

Thank you,

Best regards,

Bert

Check the tool’s mode bar. You need to make sure that the insertion point mode is selected.

Great! Thank you Mark! I didn't know you could change this.

 

If anyone else is having this issue, this has to be selected:

I too have been thinking this is broken!

 

Turns out it isn't though.

 

Thanks!
