I still have a gap in my understanding of how atlas's are arranged.
My assumption from reading the Therion Book is that the origin and
origin-label commands are about how to position the tessellation of atlas
pages on the 2D cave image. (Sorry, have not downloaded the latest version
My INDEX.th file contains;
cs EPSG:27200 #NZ Map Grid 1949

and my layout file contains;

<down> 2 A gives A1, 1 A gives A0, 0 A gives A-1
origin 2500600 6023000 600 meters #co-ords of lower left corner of first
If I leave out the last line I get perfect atlas's (and all other outputs
for that matter) - just not a very efficient use of 'paper'.
If I include the last line I get;
D:\Program Files\Therion\therion.exe: error -- mixing local and global
coordinate systems not allowed -- conflict with cs specification at
The origin co-ordinate given is just to the bottom left of the cave in the
projections I am using (plan, elevation 290 deg) so that when I have the

sheets high (rather than three)
I am using rotate 070 to orient the plan nicely on the paper.
(I think once I have this sorted out I will be able to use a more sensible

I have tried a number of spellings of 'meters' and leaving out the units to
