    Enabling 'Work Plan Based' Relocates already placed families

    Hello,
    I am developing a set of electrical families for my office. I am switching them to work plane based (which I think should be default ) and my families seem to drop -22' 7 255/256" when the option is selected. Why does this happen? Previously, they were hosted to a floor with 0'-0" offset.

    possibly the family was created that distance off of the work plane in the family editor. So now when you change them to locate by work-plane, they shift by that much?
