I'm sure I've posted and /or reported this before, but I can't find it.

When adding elements via the browser "Add element" context menu option, it is added at the top left of the entire diagram.  If you have a large diagram, this is inconvenient.  It would be easier for the user to add it at the top left of the current window so that the new element is easier to find and place in the current scope.

Reported,
Paolo

Seriously, I would have added +1000 if I thought it would help.

This causes me so much nuisance, that I used the clumsy toolbox method rather than the keyboard shortcuts when working on larger diagrams.

Definitely +1.  Agree with AndyJ as well.
