A drawing can contain as many coordinate systems as you want and can be named appropriate names so you can remember how they are used in your drawing for recalling them later.
NOTE Coordinate system names created or renamed in ZWCAD can have up to 31 characters and cannot include spaces. ZWCAD will, however, display longer coordinatesystem names and names containing spaces.
