How to change Draw Shape Position Base Origin Point

Postby conor0722 » Sun Jun 17, 2018 5:09 pm

I would like to understand how a can change a Shape (or objects) Position Base Point location from the apparent default of upper left corner to the center of the "object". There appears to be a way to change based on the nine major points, but I cannot determine how to "save" or maintain the modified origin. The end goal is to click on or select any object and get the X / Y coordinates of the object center to read in the Status Bar.

You can do it temporarly only and only on the Position and size panel (but not on the status bar.)

well, that one renders whole Draw application completely useless for me
that's funny, how such a small ("small"?) feature ,or: lack thereof -- can make entire hundred thousands lines of code piece of software non existent to someone =)

luckily this thing was googled by people before me, so i've found this topic fast =)
