It sounds like someting for a script or an action.
thank you for your reply.
Is it possible to include X and Y values in an action?
I am afraid not.
There was a reason for my mentioning script first.
If you wish to move the object to the origin corner of the artboard (corner of the bounding box at X = Y = 0), you may use an action to align both left and bottom/top (depending on version/Y axis), usable when Align to Artboard is ticked in the Align flyout.
Otherwise, I believe you need a script(er).
Carlos, Theunis, Kurt, someone?
That seems to be something that has become possible in the newer/newest version(s), Mike. Good to know.
