    How do I set the insertion point for a symbol that cuts a wall?

    If the symbol is not symmetrical to the wall, the predefined insertion points will not place the symbol correctly or cut the wall.

    The standard symbols all work, but anything I create has no control over the insertion point except the 9 cardinal points and the center.

    Most annoying. If I creat a point at the nearest grid point, I can place the symbol, but it never sees the wall and will not align or cut it.


    I have looked at offsetting from the insertion point, but that does not seem to be the answer.

    From the symbol manager, open the symbol up for editing, and use view -> move origin on it.

    Or, use the old text-based DEFSYM command when you define it instead of the standard dialog, this gives full control over the insertion point.
