In Adobe Illustrator, InDesign, and Photoshop, you can change your ruler origin — which helps to define your measuring starting point, but also defines the part of the page that will print if you use manual tiling.
To change the ruler origin, follow these steps:
Move the pointer to the upper-left corner of the rulers where the rulers intersect, as shown in Figure.
Drag the pointer to where you want the new ruler origin.
As you drag, a cross hair in the window and in the rulers indicates where the new ruler origin will be placed.
You can put the original ruler origin back in place by double-clicking on the ruler intersection.
