You need to change the reference point. Usually its in the upper left corner of InDesign (9 squares, 1 is filled, this is the actual reference point). If not, than please reset your workspace "Window > Workspace > Essentials".
Thanks for that
I have tried using the dotted cross top let and dragging it to zero zero and also reset every workspace options available, but it is still getting its frame position from the centre point, is there something e;se I can do?
hmm. You don't need to drag anything. Just click on the rectangle you want the reference point to be. Also, this has nothing to do with the zero point of the ruler.
Here what the change of the reference point looks like on my machine:
Another guess: "preference > units & increments" there is as ruler section where the origin can be set. But I don't think that it will help. But its worth a try.
Steffen, you are a superhero and I am an idiot.
Your screen shot showed me where I was going wrong.
Thank you so much for your help.
I had been stressing out trying to work it out on my own for the last day.
Please mark my last answer as correct so that the thread can be closed.
