Just a suggestion, but when using a WP, should the labels of X,Y,Z be changed to something like X',Y' and Offset? Or L/R, Up/Down and In/Out? It is supposed to be 2D after all.

When WP=none, X,Y,Z is clear and allows for '3D' drafting.

Hm not sure it won't be more confusing than it is... Bu you are right anyway, something could be done to differentiate. Maybe local X / global X?

Added with commit 7f21632

The draft X,Y,Z coordinates are now displayed as global, or local if the current working plane is different from the world axes.
