After calling Ucsman command, UCS dialog box appears:

In this UCS dialog box, there are 3 tabs.

a) Named UCSs Tab

List UCSs and set up current UCS.

  • Current UCS

Display name of current UCS. If UCS has not been saved and named, it is listed as UNNAMED.

  • UCS Names List

  • Set Current

Set up the selected coordinate system into current one (by click double the mouse at the name of axis system or right-click at the name of axis system then select Set Current).

  • Details
  • Display UCS Details dialog box (picture 2.19), where displays the date of UCS. You can see the details about the selected coordinate system by right-click at the name and then select Details.
