Position of Drawing Data imported from V4

Position of Drawing Data imported from V4

I have been bringing some V4 drawings into a V5R12 system for modification (and sometimes just for reference).  The process of importing the drawing data is straightforward with few problems or glitches.  However, the position of the drawing frames and views when imported does not match the position of the "page" that is set up in V5.  While all of the imported views correctly overlay each other the page position that will be printed in Drafting is either partially overlapping the imported data, or sometimes completely away from it.

Does anybody know of a way to relocate the page origin, rather than moving each view individually?  BTW, I know I could print using a selection and/or fit to page, but it seems to me that it should be possible to ask the system to simply print the page (when it has been sized correctly).
