Set Origin

Summary

This command is used to define a location in the workspace as the new (relative) origin and resets its coordinates to 0, 0.

After launching the command, the cursor will change to a crosshair and you will be prompted to select the new relative origin. Position the cursor at the new location in the workspace and click. The point will be set to 0, 0 and all objects in the workspace will have their locations updated relative to this point.
