    Can someone please explain x/y coordinates in note parameters in drawings? (SW 2014)

    Mike Childers

      I'm trying to uderstand how SW is coming up with the numbers for the x/y coordinates of notes.  Documentation says this parameter is x/y coordinates of the middle of a note.  In the standard D size sheet format for example, this line has an x coordinate value of about 29.

       

      However, SW shows the x coordinate of the word "DRAWIN", for example, to be over 58"!  What?  I would like to be able to type in values for text in my title blocks to precisely align them, but these x/y numbers don't make any sense.  Am I missing something?  Can someone explain this to me?
