Grid System anchor point


Hello everyone. I would like to share a problem that I have not been able to solve for years. This is the anchor point of the grid system. No matter which one is chosen, when the system is changed, it always changes based on the lower left point. Has anyone gotten the opposite?

If I understand correctly, you are looking for the Grid System to, for example, anchor in the upper right and auto-number down and back in the lower left direction.  

In the Naming Rules section below Grid Elements - Anchor and Markers, you may also change the direction of auto-numbering to start at the top down and/or the left to right.

Hi Marc, thank you very much for your answer! You have understood correctly, that is exactly what I am trying to do. I already tried to change the direction of the autonumbering, and it continues to do the same. It always varies from the low left point to the top right. But thank you very much for your contribution. Have a nice day! Best regards
