    In the current plugin I am writing, whenever I call InsertUnder it zeros out all coordinates so that it has the same coordinates as its new parent. Shouldn't this function just insert the object under the object thats passed to the function without altering its coordinates? The InsertUnder function in COFFEE behaves this way, but not the one in the C++ SDK??? Really confused by this one.
    Thanks in advance for any help.

    I think that BaseDocument::InsertObject() will insert and NOT update the matrix in this way. The coordinates aren't really altered, the Global Matrix just remains the same which causes the Local Matrix to be altered. But it is possible that InsertUnder() sets the matrix to be a unit matrix. (?)

    Failing InsertObject(), you can simply use obj->GetMl() before you Remove() and then use obj->SetMl() after you reinsert.
