Thank you for your answer.
I'm aware I don't choose the same system for all my frames, but I think I
understand how that works.

 - the up rule shows the 0 at the inner side of the right page, even if I'm
currently on a left page,
 - the left rule has its 0 somewhere in the middle of the document (84
pages), whichever page I'm working on
 - for any frame of the document, X and Y coordinates seem to be in
accordance with these rules; the Y-Pos value can go from -5000 pt to +5000
pt and more, values that cannot mean anything for me, especially when I
think of these values inside the current page.

There might be some setting I have overlooked somewhere ...
