Axis handles


New member
Since 2001 I've always had a problem with axis on the drawing. When showing axis with Show/Erase and then customizing axis size, there are four handles available. You have to pick the right one and then drag it away for axis not to "smear" all over the view. I know there's an option "interior axis clipping" that enables axis to show only two handles, but that option results in Pro/E displaying already shown axes all over the drawing.

Is there an option or command to reset axis handles or to enable easier dragging of handles?


Turn on display of axis and axis tags. Pick the axis tag (A_1) and you can drag all 4 axis lines simultaneously.
