General Usage Instructions
Many AutoCAD users have reference files set up in World coordinates. Attaching such files when in a different User Coordinate System (UCS) can result in the contents appearing at incorrect locations.
Once loaded, the plug-in will watch for certain commands to be executed: XATTACH, IMAGEATTACH, DWFATTACH, DGNATTACH, PDFATTACH and POINTCLOUDATTACH.
Should that happen while the UCS is not set to World, a task dialog will be displayed, asking the user whether they would like to set the UCS to World temporarily for the duration of the command.
If selected, this option causes the UCS to be set to World and then reset once the command has completed.
