<doNotUseMarginsForDrawingGridOrigin> (Do Not Use Margins for Drawing Grid Origin)

This element specifies that the top-left corner of the page shall not be used as the origin for the drawing grid. The drawing grid is a virtual grid which may be used by applications to specify where drawing objects shall be positioned on a page when inserted (i.e. to ensure objects are aligned, etc.). If this element is present the grid shall start at the top-left edge of the page and not the text extents.

If this element is omitted, then the gridlines shall start at the topmost edge of the text extents.

<w:doNotUseMarginsForDrawingGridOrigin w:val="true" />

The< doNotUseMarginsForDrawingGridOrigin >element's @val attribute is equal to true specifying that the document's drawing grid shall begin from the top left corner of the page, rather than the top left corner of the text extents. ]
