Paste with Reference - Only works with MCS located on part

I've posted before about problems with paste with reference and I think I finally figured out what is causing the issues.

 

On my horizontal I program from center of rotation. So all my MCS are created in the center. When you paste the completed mcs into the new work piece it doesn't pick up the direction of the part because its not on the workpiece.

 

Is this a bug ? I don't like having the MCS on the part because then I have to either G10 the program or enter in the work offsets every time.

Going to bump this thread again because I'm dealing with the problem.
Anyone else have a work around besides going back and manually moving the Paste with Reference MCS

Re: Paste with Reference - Only works with MCS located on part

I don't recall the details, but I know that in paste with reference, we locate the tool paths by re-orienting the MCS of the original WORKPIECE to the target workpiece, and we expect each workpiect to be a component.  I don't know how it would work with a common MCS, but I know who does, and he on vacation this week. I'll try to get an answer when he returns.
