What do you mean by "reset the origin"?   The origin is always the
bottom left corner of the paper.  Do you move the drawing so that it
lies partially outside the paper?

Exporting to EPS seems to translate all coordinates so that they fall
onto the paper.  In my experience, figures where this is not true do not
print correct from Latex either - so my obvious question:  Why would you
want to do this?
