Viewing angle information in graphical programming environment

In the graphics display the left and right arrow buttons provide for change of the viewing angle. However, there seems to be no way to tell what the actual angle is. I haave found this to be a problem when trying to debug a simulation in URSim.

It would be very helpful to be have a display of the viewing angle about the z-axis with respect to the base x-axis. Also helpful would be a display of the directions of the x and y axes themselves. The latter might be displayed along with the surface on which the robot is mounted.

The last of your requests can be achieved by going into the Installation tab -> Features -> Base and ticking the “Show Axes” box.

Thanks. That seems to work for the display in the Move tab but not for the graphics display from the Program-> Graphics tab.
