This command allows you to translate, rotate, and/or scale points and linework in the current job. 

The Align option does all 3 (translate, rotate, scale) at once. Any point drawn on the map screen will be updated automatically in addition to updating the coordinates in the file.

Align "From Localization"
The same alignment above could also be accomplished "From Localization" if a 2-point localization by GNSS were conducted on original points 1 and 2. Since the localization file contains the Lat/Long "pairing" with the original N,E coordinates, then as long as the correct projection is set, the 5000,5000 region coordinates and map can be transformed to grid coordinates. First go to Equip, Localization and Load and review the correct localization file, making that file "current". Click View to see the associated Lat/Long.
