Boris has the direct answer!

My indirect answer is more of a general suggestion: use command “savepos” to save a position if you might want to restore it (with command “reset”).  Of course, you have to do this before making the changes (scaling, rotation, translation…).  Use commands “help savepos” and “help reset” to see their manual pages.
