What controls origon (x,y = 0,0) of a objects coordinates? I'm not refering to which the "Reference Point".
I use a bunch of artboards and sometimes origon originates from the newest artboard i have created, which is great for my workflow. I place a lot of objects using the top coordination tool.
But often the origon fixes it's position to the first artboard. Is there a way to control the origon?
Specs: Win7, 64bit, Illustrator CS6 16.0.3.
View>Rulers>Change To Global/Artboard Rulers.
Thanks a bunch!
Is there also a way to reset the rulers again to the original origon / ruler position?
Click in the top left square of the rulers to reset
If you are having trouble with items pasting on the wrong artboard, keep your artboards palette visible, and highlight the artboard you want to paste into.
Thank you for the revealing the resetting function!
The artboard handling is totally under control
When resetting, you may find it necessary to adjust the position of artwork (when you place objects by coordinates). If so, the sooner you find out the better.
Worked like a charm. You're a life saver. Thanks!
Right click the ruler and choose Convert to Artboard Rulers.
Wow!!! In all the years of using Adobe Illustrator, I did not know about the Global ruler setting!!!! So Amazing, Thanks
