Hell,
I Work in Western Australia and I do not know how I can adjust the coordinate.
Every time I click on something to edit it the item is transferred to an unknown point. Could anyone help me with this?

Thank you very much

I am using CS and do not know how to set the coordinate.

My main problem is: Whenever I want to edit something on the GeoPlan, it jumps outside the area and transfered to an unknown place and then I have to drag it and bring it back to its correct position?!!

Hello,
I added an image to my reply which might help you set your WA coordinate system. It is a command under GeoPlan

Thank you very much Robet,

(GDA1994) MGA Zone 50 seems alright.

I think because I have created my network on the wrong coordiante it is hard to fix it.

Thank you very much again.
