i click on Universal Coordinate System.

i get an Icon that lines up with 0,0 Red X.

i go back and turn that off.

so, what coordinate system am i in now?

Whichever you started in. Turning the icons on/off doesn't change it. You may find it helpful to leave both icons ON.

...BTW, it's User Coordinate System, not Universal. World CS is fixed; User CS can be changed as you wish.

A brand new drawing will start in the World CS. An older drawing will open in whatever CS was current when the drawing was saved.

That box simply indicates whether the World CS icon is displayed. It does not affect what Workplane or coordinate system is currently active.

There is no red X on my screen, because my installation is almost certainly different from yours. Can you post a screen shot? (Press the PrintScreen key to copy an image of your screen; open your favorite image/photo editor, open its Edit menu, and paste the image; save in .gif format; attach it to your next Forum message.)

"what's the the Red X at 0,0 called?"

I'd call it a minor glitch ;-)

It shows up when Snap to Grid is active. I have no idea why. In my installation, it appears first at (0,0) and then shows up at the last place I click. It's irritating but apparently harmless.
