Import Update

If I want to update an import, is there some way to highlight the origin point?

    What do you mean by highlight? Are you thinking select the (0, 0, 0) point in the imported file (which I think is just the origin of the generated part studio), or to move the imported part to a new location (which is probably easiest with transform --> by mate connectors)?

    Right, but I can't find the origin. How can I find it?;)

    It should be on the left top side, in the feature tree:

    You can either select the origin directly there, or if it's light grey (as it is here) hover over it and press the eye icon to unhide it. Same goes for the planes. However, you can rename these, so the dot might have another name next to it.
