What are the pros/cons of using scope boxes to control position of Datum Marks (levels and grids) vs. editing them with 2d/3d controls?  TIA.  T.

If you are using scope boxes then you are more restricted to their extents, however this is also a good thing as its more difficult to stuff them up.

Personally i don't see much difference either way.  I've only used scope boxes a few times to recover some lost datums on a very old updated project.  But these days you don't tend to have these issues.  Totally personal preference... IMHO.
