I often have artwork located at x=0, y=0 that overlaps with Easel's black dot indicating "Home". It would be helpful if this was a color rather than a shade of gray/black.
You can see here that a drill hole is hidden by the black dot.
Not what you want to hear but there is a workaround. Tell Easel your material is thicker than it is, do your design then put in correct thickness if tabs are needed. If no tabs you can just leave it.
