If you set this advanced option to FALSE , the origin (0,0) is set to the bottom-left corner of the drawing frame.

This advanced option is system specific and is read from teklastructures.ini. Generally, there is no need to modify system-specific settings. Do not modify them if you are not an administrator.

For more information about the drawing export, see Export a drawing to a 2D DWG or DXF file.
