Measuring in assembly mode question

Assembly mode, product, whatever it is called. I'm a Pro/E user learning CATIA so still using Pro/E terms.


When I make a measurement, I have the option to get "components" which means I'm projecting the measurement onto a coordinate system. This coordinate system appears to be the same one that the "compass" (I think it's called) uses. Can I change this coordinate system? I.e. get my measurement's "components" in a different 3-axis system? I can't seem to accomplish this.


Thanks.
