Cordinate Sustem Visibility

Hi, I am new to Turbocad and am finding it very frustrating. Some things will work for a while and then change. Others are too finnicky. I will first ask about coordinate systems. I am trying to work in 3d. To create entities in space, I have been using the "set coordinates by three points". The first couple of days, when I clicked the origin point, a coordinate system would temporarily show up to help guide me through the input of the X point and the point on plane. After a couple of days, this temporary coordinate system no longer shows itself, although the command still works otherwise. How do I get it back? Better yet, how do I get it to stay on all the time?

Thanks,
Eric

Are you referring to the user coordinate system?
activate it by checking the box on options reference page.
Or workspace

Nikki,
Thanks for the reply. I am new and have not been able to find any tutorials on the coordinate systems. I do not know if "user coordinate system" is what I am using, but it sounds right. Under my options menus, there is no reference page option, if that is what you meant. Can you send more specific instructions?
Thanks,
Eric

Eric, I suspect that you've seen the answer to this in another of your threads: leave the visibility of Layer 0 ON.
