Hi,

I've noticed it long ago, however today I realized that it seems a little weird. In the editor, whether in scene view or rigid body editor, the Y-axis seems to be inverted, that is if I go up, Y becomes negative, and if down, it becomes positive. I may be wrong, but it doesn't make sense to me. Isn't it supposed to be like in coordinate system?

Well, historically in computer graphics the origin of the coordinate has always been on the top-left corner of the screen, so that's why in 99% of the cases you will find that Y+ is towards the bottom.

Same as a text editor, rows increase going down and columns increase to the right.. once you get used to it it's nothing strange, really :mrgreen:
