Symbol boundaries and registration.

When I create a new symbol, the center stage marker doesn't have an equal amount of space around it. The boundaries reach -750x-750 in the negative direction but then 2000x1450 in the positive. This seems a little weird to me. I don't need this much space, but I would like to know how to set the reference point as center.

 

I understand that if I draw out an object then convert this to a symbol I will be able to set it's registration point but this seems a bit strange to create a symbol within a symbol. I am well aware that a symbol can consist of multiple symbols and my workflow does utilise this but I'm just trying to refine a few things in my head before I move on to the next project. 

 

Can registration not be set when just creating new symbol from nothing?

 

Probably the most noob question ever but thanks anyway.

Hi.

 

I'm not sure if I understand... Do you mind sharing a screenshot or video of what you're trying to do and the issue you're facing?

 

Regards,

JC
