This task shows you how to change
the current axis.
When you activate an object, the
current axis is reset to the axis of that object. Changing the current axis
changes the reference point by which elements are routed and placed.
Click the Change Current Axis icon
Select the object you want to use
as a reference.
The axis for the selected object is displayed.
You can also change the current
axis and place the compass on the object. The compass allows you to
manipulate that object. To do this click the Change Current Axis and Snap
and select the object. The axis and compass are both placed.
