Coordinates bar and work plane

Coordinates bar looks as following

On the coordinates bar there is a plane definition. This defines the current work plane. It may be XY , XZ or YZ principal planes. You can also define z origin parameter to set the plane’s origin relative to absolute origin. The coordinates on the bar are updated when you move the cursor on the graphics window. These coordinates are the calculated by projecting the cursor location on work plane along view (camera) direction if possible. The work plane is also used by geometry making functions (while making lines , arcs etc.)

When you make a point selection and free point click option is clicked the cursor position will be projected to work plane for the result point
