NOTE: Care must be taken when using Window Scale (WinSca), Window Rotation X,Y,Z (WinRot), and Window Origin (WinOrg) in sequence without a screen replot. Since these key-ins are likely to be in a macro they do not redraw the graphics window. A replot (Rep) must be done to accomplish this.   If two or more are used without a replot (which is likely in a macro) they must be in the following order as this example shows:

 

WinSca 1=20

RotZ 80

WinOrg 3563188 232820
