Thanks for all the feedback. I associate the origin with the board
file because there is only one board. It might make more sense in the
[pcbnew] section of the project file if multiple boards were supported
I do think it could do with being saved though, it'd be a great help
for anyone who has re-positioned the origin.
Lorenzo, I use this feature because I always like to position
switches, connectors and other mechanical features relating to a
single datum point (usually lower left of PCB edge, but sometimes the
enclosure is included too, and the board should be made to reference
Previously I used to have to put my board off of the sheet legend that
is present in PCBNEW so that it's lower left corner was the datum at
