You can set several options
to determine how AutoCAD Map 3D performs coordinate system transformations
and responds when you open drawings with embedded coordinate system
These options apply only
to the current drawing. Each time you open a drawing, these settings
take effect, but they do not affect other drawings.
allows the manipulation of the coordinate geometry. Use the Coordinate
Transformation Adjustment options to specify how AutoCAD Map 3D performs
coordinate transformations through adjustments for size, scale,
rotation, and elevation.
After you query objects
into a drawing from source drawings, do not change the coordinate
transformation options if you plan to save changes back to the source
Note The AutoCAD Map 3D simple
transformation options, available in the Drawing Settings dialog
box, cannot be used with coordinate transformations.
Storing Coordinate Systems
in the Drawing
When you open a drawing
that has a coordinate system that is not in your dictionary, AutoCAD Map 3D can
add that coordinate system definition to your dictionary. You can
choose to always add the definitions, never add the definitions,
or have AutoCAD Map 3D prompt you each time.
Specify the units to
use when displaying geodetic distance.
