I loaded a lat/long base map into MapViewer and converted it to State Plane, but I still see lat/long coordinates in the status bar. Why?

The coordinate units shown in the status bar are independent of the map projection.


You can change the units shown in the status bar by following these steps

  1. Click Map | Plot | Plot Properties to open the plot properties in the Property Manager.
  2. Click to the Units tab of the Property Manager.
  3. Change the Coordinate display units to the desired coordinates.
