when I click an object in the properties panel, it shows x and y position. How to I make the numbers represent the top left corner position so that I can make the top left corner 0/0? If I click on the top left corner in the info panel, it does not and gets the x/y numbers as centred.
You need to rearrange the content inside of these objects so that their registration mark is located where you want it to be... that is what dictates the x/y reference point for these objects you click.
that worked, thank you.
