Setting Drawing Options
Concept Procedure Quick Reference
 
 
 

You can specify general settings and coordinate transformation options for the current drawing. If you are working with drawings that use different global coordinate systems, AutoCAD Map 3D standardizes the drawings based on the global coordinate system of the the current drawing.

Note Once you bring objects into the current drawing, do not change the coordinate transformation options if you plan to save changes back to source drawings. The save-back process determines whether adjustments are necessary to restore objects to the correct coordinate system when you save them back to source drawings.
