GID Positioning System is a great way to do that.
This script looks very difficult, but it isn't. I have low skills at scripting and have no problems using this script. This video shows how to setup GID.

i don't like that cause it takes hours to find the proper classes and items.

If you want to place items they already at the units menu of the editor you can place them on map, start your preview and lock them with GID to move them to the right position without looking for the item in the GID list for hours.

In the video I've posted is a description about the files you need for GID to work.

#1
- Place the table via editor and go to preview
- Lock the table with GID and place it where you want
- Click on "Copy Item to Clipboard" and paste that code in your location1.sqf and save it

#2
- go back to the editor, delete the table placed by editor (not the entry in location1.sqf) and place the items you want to put on the table nearby
- lock and positioning the items with GID like the table in step #1
- Copy to Clipboard and insert the items in your location1.sqf like in step #1
- delete the items you inserted via editor

After you placed an item via editor, moved it via GID and copied the GID entry to your location1.sqf GID is creating a second table at the position you moved it via GID and the origin table placed with the Arma editor set back to its former position. So you can delete every item placed by editor after you created an GID entry in your location1.sqf cause this doubles every item.

I did the same thing with the two items which i wantded to be on the table and stoppet cause i can't get used to clikc on east west... insted of lefr right up and down and choose 1m 0,1m... all the time.
