Arca F-line Orbix tilt on nodal point w/ raised standart? : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

To those who have access to an Arca F-line camera with the Orbix add-on:
If the Orbix tilt mechanism is used, does it tilt the lens round its nodal point also if the front standart has been directly raised?
Or is the Orbix pivot point fixed in relation to the monorail, meaning indirect movements would have to be used when rise and tilt is to be applied at the same time?
Also, what happens to the pivot point in relation to the nodal point when using recessed lensboards?
