It's normal, actually. When creating a projection in the Drawing WB, the coordinates of your shape are projected "as is". A point situated at (1000,1000,1000), when projected on the XY plane, will become (1000,1000,0). So probably it will be outside the limits of the sheet (the point 0,0 is at the top left corner of the sheet).
So you must do a little bit of math, if you know your point is at (1000,1000,0), and you want it at the (0,0) point of the drawing sheet, you need to give X and Y offset of -1000 at scale 1:1 (or -100 at scale 1:10)
Actually, it would be handy to have a tool on the Drawing WB to "move view to the center of the screen" that would set the X and Y offsets automatically... issue #2288
