You can edit the script file w/ notepad. Its a small script - just change
the line that assigns 100 to the label distance to some other number. If
someone wants to edit it, an inputbox() function could be used to prompt
for a label distance.

I really have no idea how you'd go about doing that, other than by
hand. What you may be able to do is print off 2d versions of the sector
from each angle, and try to get a sense from that what the coordinates
should be by drawing lines horizontally and vertically on the page. That
may help.

No, there is no undo available. I'm not being mean by not including it in
the program :-), its just not something easily implemented in a system that
stores (or is capable of storing) so much data.
