I am having a conceptual problem. More often than not, the library footprints are centred in the middle of the component. This is my problem.
I work by having my footprint origins in the centre of a pin - usually pin 1.
So. What I want to do is grab all the various graphical parts to a footprint in a library component and then click on a suggested magnetic point when I wiggle the mouse above pin 1. I want to then move the entire footprint to the blue cross origin.
Either that or simply click on an option somewhere that shifts the origin to the centre of pin 1 …
Apart from not being able to see through my holes this also is a very difficult issue for me and I am being very distressed by it.
