I have created a design, and trying to get the component position file to line up with the gerbers.
If I press space over the Drill/Plot origin, then move to C1, the location (dx, dy) is 70.65, -8.4mm.
If I export the gerbers and check “Use drill/place file origin”. Then open the gerbers with gerbview, C1 is at location 70.65, 8.4, seems good.
However if I export the position file (which has no option to select the origin, seems like it uses the drill/plot origin), is specifies the location as 70.65, 8.4 (note the positive Y value instead of negative).
Is this a bug that I should file an issue on Gitlab for? How can I make the component position file match the location of the gerbers?
Note I placed the drill/file origin at a specific place due to alignment when importtng and the step file into FreeCAD.
