I'm trying to place Coordinate Dimensions 23 markers on a drawing. The coordinates displayed on the coordinates tracker when I mouse over the point are correct, in the example below: (538347526, 584138161). If I then choose to place a Coordinate Dimensions 23 object on the drawing, make it use "Project Origin" for its coordinates and place it on the same point, some entirely different coordinates appear on the marker. Anyone have any idea why this is? See below for screenshots.

Mousing over the point:

Thanks for your help.
Is there a specific reason why you modeled your project so extremely far from the Project Origin?
Things can sometimes go wrong when you are very far from the Origin.
