“Phase” of a material on a surface

Sometimes – by the way often – you might need not just to fill a surface by a certain material but to set the “phase” of the material too. E.g. if you try to paint using a ceramic tile texture on a wall you might want to set the point on the surface where the upper left corner of the tile should be positioned on. (NOT NECESSARILY the upper left corner of the surface.)
Is there a decent way to do this in SketchUp Make 2017?

Apply the texture on a face (not on an object)
Then, select that face with the right mouse button and choose:
Texture->position and explore the options with the (fixed) pins. Click-drag with left mouse button on the pins.
Green for scaling and rotating, Red for startposition.

Couldn’t even imagine it was so simple! Thanks.
