I've been working on a number of different projects and just yesterday I encountered a problem that I can't figure out. Up until yesterday, when I would draw a 3D object and then rotate it - the coordinates would initially show the rotated coordinates but when I would unselect that object and then re-select, the coordinates would change to the new coordinates. In other words, if I drew a rectangular box with the long axis on the X-axis: X:4 in, y: 2 in, z:.25 in and then select the box, it shows me a #d object with the Z-axis pointing up, Y-axis pointing to the rear and X-axis pointing to the right.
When I rotate that object 90 degrees on the Y-axis the axes now show Z to the right, X downward and Y to the rear. That's what I've always experienced in the past and that's OK. However.... when I select another object now, then come back to the first object I see it exactly as I last saw it, with Z to the right, Y to the rear and X downward. I used to see the axes shift back so that Z was always upward, Y to the rear and X to the right. Now they don't... BUT... with the object rotated and Z pointing to the right, when I di a Delta Z by 2" the movement is upwards (along the negative X axis (as they are observed)).
I'm guessing I accidently twiddled a bit somewhere in the Preferences but I can'tfor the life of me figure out where to even begin looking! Help!!
