Well , every plate has its own coordinate system . I want to change this system for existing plates .

No way to do that.

This LCS is integrated with sizes.

 

You determine it during insertion.

After that if you want to rotate only LCS two actions have to be made:

  1. replace W with L size
  2. rotate the plate around local 0,0.

Of course it isn't perfect solution itself.

Yes , I did something similar . I set in the settings the local plate axes to be shown , and then made new plate with the same contour until I got the axes I need . I just wished there wes some way to do this automatically .
