Is there a way to change the default “add document” position?

My machine has (0, 0) at the top right but add document assumes it is bottom left and positions the file off the machine. It’s not a major issue but it would be nice not to have to zoom out to look for it, select it and drag it onto the machine.

settings-application-default raster position should fix this for you. just click the corner you want :slight_smile:

Thanks, Joe.
Default raster position is set to ‘BL’ (bottom-left). I’ve tried modifying it and it changes the insert position but only relative to and inside the upper right quadrant. It also, as the name suggests, only affects bitmap images. SVGs come into the bottom left corner of the top right quadrant, I think.
More play required.

Machine origin and work origin can be different. Machine origin is usually where the homing switches are, but you can freely set the location where the work origin shuld be, by joggin there and klick setZero.

The LaserWeb frontend always shows work coordinates and relates to the work origin.
