3D polyline

What length is shown in properties for a 3D polyline?

A 3D polyline having two nodes at 0,0,0 and 10,0,0 has length of 10.

If I move the second nodes to 10,0,1000 the length is still 10.

Is that the projection in xy-plan?

It shows the real length, so I guess you have an UCS trouble, sir.

1] in an empty file, draw a cube with _BOX

2] type in _UCS and double Enter

3] set yourself to an isometric view, with _-VIEW then _NEISO

4] draw a 3Dpoly snapping on two vertices of the cube

5] check the properties, moving the grips

Thanks!

I was wondering if that was some system variable controlling this?

At my other computer I can see the real length but not at my job!

Here I see the projection at xy-plan!
