Changing the page/rulers origin

Recommended Posts

It would be great to be able to toggle between the current behavior and the "traditional" behavior of the rulers while changing the page origin. Sometimes I wish to move the page origin a specific amount, and that's not possible with the current behavior as the rulers also shift with the page origin as one drags. If we could leave the current ruler positions until AFTER letting go of the mouse, one can move the origin a specific amount relative to the current ruler measurements.

Thanks for your consideration and phenomenal update!

While you're waiting for that, you could set guides where you want to place the new origin, set it, and then delete the guides.

Yes that’s what I’ve been doing...
