    Default Insertion point not moving when using move action

    I set the insertion point on the top side at the midpoint, and I put in 3 move actions and included the entire block, attributes and all, in the selection set, yet the dark blue grip (indicating the insertion point of course) will not move, and I don't want a bunch of grips floating around in space. I tried just throwing a dynamic point on top of it hoping it might override and move, but of course the original insertion point grip stayed and the only the dynamic point moved. See attached block. Appreciate any assistance.

    Insert a Basepoint parameter. If you include this with your Move Actions, your base point grip will move with your block.

    Worked like a charm, sadly I didn't think of it. Wish my instructors would've covered DB in the classroom!
