Hi,

If it's that the coordinates do not match your map it maybe that the map datum is set incorrectly - see page 46 of this manual for further details:

Let me know if that helps, if not I'll investigate further.

map is correct coordinates seem to be locked

Expert:  Richard Hill replied 4 years ago.
Hi Kieran,

If you don't mind losing your settings then it might be worth trying to default the System Settings:

System > Defaults (pg 55 of the manual)

Let me know if that helps, if not I'll investigate further.

Best Regards,

Richard
