If you want to rotate a datum CSYS about another line or axis, you can use Move Object > Angle.

Hello,

i tried Move Object, but it rotate All others Axis System, and i dont get action in the tree.

I want it in tree for all Axis Systems, so i can change it later again. 

 

Or i missed smthg?

If this is related to your journal that creates datum csys features on sketch points, be aware that the datum csys features that you create are tied to the objects selected for the X and Y axis vectors. When the object that defines the X and Y axis vectors rotates, your created datum csys features will rotate as well. If you want the created datums to be independent, you will need to break this associativity in your code.

I got it, thx.

 

And this second thing, i cant get that move object in modification tree so i can change it later again(just type diffrent angle)?

If you use the "move object" command, it will only show up as a feature if you turn on the "associative" option (found in the "settings" section of the dialog).

If you pick a rotation vector that does not pass through the point, the datum csys will move off of the point. I'm not sure what you expected to happen?

If the datum csys is independent of other objects, you can double click on it and edit the position and/or orientation. When you double click on it a "manipulator" will appear; to rotate the csys about its Z axis, click and drag on the sphere that appears on the XY plane (the one between the X and Y axes) or click on it once and an angle entry will appear - enter an angle value to rotate the csys.
