In the part design workbench users often have difficulty seeing the coordinate axis system. The following is a quick hint enabling users to control the coordinate axis system display size, allowing for a more comfortable CATIA experience.

To change the Axis System display size go to:

Tools > Options > Infrastructure > Part Infrastructure > Display and look under 'Display In Geometry Area'

To adjust the size, control the slider labelled 'Axis system display size (in mm)' The Axis System display can vary between 1mm - 100mm.
