stake objects v loci

Recommended Posts



I have recently upgraded to 2020 from 2017 and am having a weird occurence with stake objects versus 2d loci. Can anyone explain to me why 

the coordinates of a stake object would be different to that of a 2d locus when the are placed on the same point (see attached image). And no, there is no plan rotation involved! This wasn't an issue with 2017 and am wondering if i have failed to set something up properly...

In 2020, the Easting and Northing values are reported from whichever GIS coordinate system is active in the file (new in 2020).
But it's easy to resolve. If you are not using GIS, go to File > Document Settings > Georeferencing and uncheck the very first option at the top of the dialogue. The Stake will now display Easting and Northing the same as X and Y.
