coordinate system of an added plane

every day a another problem. If i add a new plane from the feature task, why is the coordinate system from the new plane (red arrow) different to the coordinate system from my part (blue arrow) ?

If i add a new sketch "with hand" on the new plane there is no problem, but i use a macro which draws the sketch and lines. And all is calculated from origin, when the x-coordinate shows to annother direction my drawing is "lying" on the floor. Of course i can change my code to new direction but it feels not right.

Is there a oppertunity to switch the new Plane to the direction of the system?

I use Solidworks 2016
