In some situation you may want to align a material to certain point.

In the example below, you will note that the tiles seem to be setting out from some random position

In order to fix this, simply select the object ( In this case a wall) and got to Design>Align 3D Texture>Set Origin…
then select the origin point for the texture, In my example the bottom left hand corner.

You will notice now the tiles are setting out from the correct location

This process can be used for aligning things such as exterior paving, floor and walls tiles, vertical/horizontal weatherboards etc.
