Red circle with plus sign

There is a red circle with a Plus sign in the middle of my board layout. I can’t find any reference to it in the manuals. It’s in an area that I’m using for the layout and is distracting. Can it be moved? I suspect it’s the origin for something but not the grid. I have already reset that.

I just drew a yellow one in Pcbnew:

I can move it by hovering over it with the mouse and pressing “m”.
There may be other allignment marks, fiducials or who knows what.

The “red circle with a Plus sign” is the Drill and Place origin also named auxiliary axis in the plot dialog. It is set by using the tool represented by a target and 2 axis in the right toolbar.

You can check this Chris Gammell’s video on YouTube for more details on the various origins available:

Thanks, Efcis: That’s just what I was looking for.
