Z value with "CHSPACE"

Why when I use CHSPACE command do I get a z value added to an entity either going from paperspace or from model space?

What causes this and how can I stop this?

Hope someone could figure why when draw anything in layout and use chspace it put z elevations after it moved to Modelspace.

A first guess: it comes form sysvar BACKZ, wich is set to -234.987 in your
drawing. No idea why and for what reason chspace depends on the setting of
BACKZ, wich holds the value for the back clipping plane in DVIEW

That was the problem when I checked the drawing variables.
It was read only.

kingtut are you hijacking my post?
You are confusing the forum!!

Here is a sample drawing showing the problem I have. If you try using CHSPACE to bring a line from model space into paperspace and vice versa you will find a z value added.
You will find BACKZ is set to 0.
