"How to insert macros at 0,0 or other X, Y coordinates?"
The AccuDraw tool box can be used to enter coordinates for operations such as macro placement.
Although not typical in recent versions of promis.e, it may be necessary to define the origin (0,0) to be in the desired location before the steps above will work properly. This is evident if the elements inserted using the above process are inserted in the wrong position, or if the AccuDraw compass appears somewhere besides where 0,0 is expected to be. The following processes can be used to set the origin:
Open promis•e and any page in any project.
Select Settings > AccuDraw from the main pull down menus along the top of the application.
On the Operations tab of the AccuDraw Settings dialog, disable the "Floating Origin" option and close the dialog.
Define a tentative point, by pressing the left and right mouse buttons at the same time. A cross hair should appear where the tentative point is specified.
Press F11 to put focus on AccuDraw, then key in the letter O (for Origin).
Select File > Save Settings to maintain this change.
Define AccuDraw compass location (Set Origin)
