Two Point Perspective Vanishing Point XY Values

First problem I'm having, when I save my current perspective grid as a preset and then try to load that preset I get this message, "Grid from selected preset is outside drawing area and will be shifted back to drawing area." The result is I get a two point perspective with default values, which is useless for me. 

 

Second issue, since the only change I'm making is to move the vanishing points around for different objects it'd be nice if I could simply return the vanishing points to the setup that the preset isn't working for. I know Illustrator has this information because it's shown when I move a vanishing point. But doing it manually I can only kinda/sorta get close to where I had it. Is there a way to manually type in the exact XY values to make a vanishing point go where I want?

It's set up in View > Perspective grid > Define grid

But it doesn't use absolute positions of vanishing points in there.
