Local origin when placing objects

stahL

When placing objects after modelling something far away (-> local origin changes after save and open)
newly created objects are placed near that point.

For example:
element.object.pos.x = 0;
element.object.pos.y = 0;
I expect the object to be placed at the orginal (0,0) and not the local one.

How can I achieve this?

Thank you for your help,
Jonas

You can call ACAPI_ProjectSetting_GetOffset to get the current database offset, so you can calculate the origin accordingly.
