Unite the UCS's

Why does the FDS layout have a different UCS than standard Inventor files? It makes for some frustrating moments when inserting non-asset part files. It's not that it causes problems, its just annoying!

Can you give me a little bit more information on this?  I'd like to see what we can do with it but I am not sure I fully understand the issue.  Thanks!

Mike - I sent you a couple of pix in Private Message of the differences in UCS between a regular Inventor Part and a standard FDS layout. You will notice that the views are the same as determined by the ViewCube in each but the UCS is off by 90 degrees on the X axis. When inserting standard parts or assemblies (not assets) they come in with that 90 degree discrepancy. This also goes for inserting things like point clouds as well and getting those rotated is a REAL pain.
