Description Edson Brusque 2012-11-28 20:53:46 UTC

    When editing an object' size and position, you can select the Base Point.

    Everytime the user reenter this window, the Base Point returns to top left. I belive that many users besides me uses Draw to make technical designs (like control panel sketches for electric equipment). In this case we always use *center* as the object's base point.

    It's very anoying to have to reselect it everytime you edit an object. It would be very helpfull if a default base point could be selected on Draw options.

    Thank you!
