And what would that do?

Locate the pick point for the quick layout at absolute zero. Would save me from having to switch to an Absolute input method to locate the layout and then reset back to my normal Rel Cart. mode for working.

Yup. Makes keeping sheets and other things aligned easier.

Well, color me impressed! :shock:

FWIW we've been using a non-plotting snapping point at abs. zero on a locked layer in the default file, which allows MSP sheets to be placed accurately. Having the feature Josh notes would allow the same without the need for this extra layer. :idea:

Could the Last Paper Size= & Last Check Printer Paper Size= recall the paper sizes by the papers sizes name vs. the paper's position in the list? The paper size lists size/postions can be like a moving target sometimes with driver/windows updates but the paper names usually stay the same. Would save us a lot of time in updating our Saved Printer Settings over and over. Most of my staff here has given up on using them because they set the wrong paper sizes after updates add something to the list.
