Ruler co-ordinates

Asked by James Verniquet on 2012-10-31

I would like to be able to change the co-ordinates of the rulers.
My laser machine treats the upper left corner as 0,0. I know this is unusual, but that's the way it is! It would be nice if Inkscape could do this too. Otherwise, my head gets a little confused :P
I've read the post about moving co-ordinates, but is it possible to set the ruler to always be like this?
