Can I move a solver object from the center of the scene?

I'm trying to get a sphere to drop from the sky bounce a few times and land on a plane. I have it set up in a solver object using gravity. The bounce looks great but my problem is no matter what I try the sphere wants to fall in the center of the scene. Ideally I want many spheres to fall and land where I want them to, so it is a big issue I can't get the sphere's to move, from the center of the scene, and keep the same bounce that I like.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. I can provide any additional info as needed.

BTW I have Cinema 4D 10.5

Thank you again.

oof, long time ago... I think you turn off the Solver move the sphere then go to the Dynamics menu and Initialize the object (or objects) then turn the Solver back on

Thank you for the response. I thought I tried that earlier with no results but the "Initialize the object" worked perfectly. Thank you so much you saved my sanity. :)
