Default Re: how do i get a fixed ...

VBA methods do repsect the page origin:

Layer.CreateLineSegment 0,0, 5,0 - will create a horizontal line from the lower left corner of the page. However if you change DrawingOriginX/Y in the document, the same command will create a line starting at the specified point.

However when you set up your rulers the way you described, you will move the center of coordinates to the upper left corner of the page but the direction of Y axis doesn't change. Positive values still go up. The ruler just doesn't show the coordinates as negative, but that's what they will be. You will need to use negative coordinates, such as:

Layer.CreateLineSegment 0, -3, 5, -3

This will create a horizontal line 5 inches in length, 3 inches from the top of the page.

I hope this helps.
