I am the first one:

Modify the Hatch style in ZW3D:

Some times, maybe you find that it is a little difficult to find.

Some users don't like to see this style display of Datum:

In face, we can change it by setting Configuration:

Also we can drag Datum plane to change the size

Another skill about manager the datum plane, sometimes users want to hide Datum plan, you maybe think about "Blank entities" but it is temporary. How to hide Datum for whole enviroment?

You can go to Visual manager, as below image shown, you can double click the option to Turn on/off.

And "External Display" use to control the Datum Plane of Sub component , so now maybe you have know that why I can't use insert part's datum plane to align it.

More about Visual manager.

Set the Drop shadow, since the defaul option in ZW3D is "turn off", so if you want to use the shadow effect, you can set as below shown.
