Fix In-Context Origin?

mark_legermark_leger Member Posts: 10 PRO
I have an origin in an assembly that is in the very center of sphere.

The in-context part studio that is referenced to the assembly origin somehow moved and is now offset.  Is there any way to correct the position of the in-context origin?

As you can see, it's somehow below and to the right of the assembly origin.
The part is already done, not in frame, so starting a new part studio is not what I'm looking for.

    Did you try "update context" after setting a primary instance in the assembly? I don't think I've had this problem before, but that might fix it.

    Yes, I did.  I checked that the primary reference was correctly set in the assembly and updated the context in the part studio but didn't change anything.
    If I start a new In-context part studio, origin is where it's supposed to be.

    I redid the model in a new part studio and deleted the one that was giving me a problem.
