How to rotate my pickbox when I rotated UCS

In order for you to have the type of window selection that you are looking to achieve - once you set your UCS to its new position or angle... what you want to do is make your screen align to the new UCS (or "square it up" as my CAD teacher used to explain it).

 

The trick to that is to simply use the PLAN command and set it to the <current> UCS.

Example after setting the UCS:

PLAN [enter] [enter]

Even if you were to rotate your cursor by using the SNAPANG command and set it to the same angle as the USC, the selection box will still be "squared" to your screen.

After you are done rotating these angles, don't forget to set them back to "normal" for the next guy.

SNAPANG = 0

UCS [enter] [enter]

PLAN [enter] [enter]

Not an Option.

Do you mean crosshairs instead by chance?

You can see my attached. When I used command ucs, I changed OXY and rotated crosshair. But my pickbox still keep old OXY and do not rotate same crosshair. How do you rotate pickbox same crosshair
