Cell origin with coordinates


I often change the origin of the cell and the 9 positions you suggest is very convenient.
However, this morning, I got a case where I wanted that the cell should be placed in 0,0 in its topcell.
So, can you add the possibility to change the origin to a position set by 2 coordinates : x , y

Thank you, Brgds,


  • Sure :)

    I have created a ticket: https://github.com/KLayout/klayout/issues/603

    So far the solution is to put the cell at 0,0 with the specified position, then switching to "Select top level objects only", select all and use "Edit / Selection / Move By" to position the content.

    Best regards,
