You can customize the appearance and some behaviors of the compass, attitude, and rangefinder indicators.

Changing Units from Degrees to Radians

To change the units in which a compass, attitude, or rangefinder indicator expresses angles, right-click the indicator and select Angles in Radians or Angles in Degrees from the shortcut menu.

Changing the Appearance of Indicators

To change the visual appearance of a compass, attitude, or rangefinder indicator, right-click the indicator and select Compass Properties, Attitude Properties, or Rangefinder Properties, respectively, from the shortcut menu. In the Indicator properties dialog box that displays, use the configuration options to choose which components display on the indicator and the colors of the components.

Tip  The right side of the properties dialog box displays a preview of the current configuration so you can see how changes look before you apply them to the indicator.

You can customize additional properties of rangefinder indicators.

For compass and attitude indicators, you also can create properties to programmatically read and write many of the options available in the properties dialog boxes.
