Maintaining bus name label "offset" after move?

Hello! This is my first post here so I hope I'm getting this right. Let me know if I should change anything.


I have an issue with the position of bus names. Whenever I name a new bus thes bus name property is placed at a position close to the bus segment. If we´re taking a horizontal bus segement as example the name position is where I want it on the y-axis slightly above the bus (not that this position is off grid), but the position on the x-axis is seldom where I want it. However as soon as I move the name to where I want it, the property snaps to the grid and the bottom part of the text is hidden by the bus segment itself.


Is there a way to keep the original offset from the bus segment even if the name label is moved?


If I change the origin of the property from "lower left" to "middle left" and manually moves the name label one grid point upwards I get the label close to where I want it, but it is far to timeconsuming to do this for every bus in our designs. I guess I could write an automation script to perform this task, but I thought I should check whterer there is a better solution before attempting that.


Any tips would be appreciated
