Having issues centering the file

I’m having issues in some cases centering of some files in the cut area on the screen. For instance last night I played with a simple Christmas tree design ( approx 8 in. tall ) in Inkscape, and when i loaded the dxf file it was a long way off. Tried to move the file around with the origin button and moving the zero… I’m hoping to finish a sign I’m making as a gift for a co-worker. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, I’m still getting the hang of it all and it’s likely something I’m doing wring or not doing prior to loading the file. Thanks in advance

Most likely caused by the location of your origin set in Inkscape.

thanks @BobD , I’ll take a look at that tonight.
