[Draft] Re-define a holes-table origin

Builder

I have a draft with an hole table. Now I haved "saved as" the old draft to have it linked to a new similar part as new draft. Now it happens that the edge where the origin of the table was placed does not exist anymore in the new part, so the X1-Y1 axis are shown in red (disconnected).

 

I cannot find the way to redefine the origin of the hole table, any help?

I don't use hole tables but I played around with it and it seems like when you change the x/y origins you also have to select the holes again. Note that the button for hole selection highlights after you place the new origin. Seems a little odd that you can't just change the origin for the holes already in the table.

Oddly there's a simultaneous post on this very issue and it has the solution. Use the "attach dimension" command. Video here:
