"Set Coordinate Format" allows you to choose the default format that points will be entered and displayed in. This will change the default option for entering points in Draw, Label, & Measure, and for entering points in the "Search for a Colorado Place" search box. It will also change the default format for how points are displayed in the identify pop-up (which displays information at a map click).
