I am wandering if it's possible to prompt the user to create a Cartesian coordinate system by clicking on 3 point to define a plane through a macro?

If I record a macro and carry out this procedure, it simply puts the x,y,z values for the points I click on in to the macro, I want it to prompt the user to click on 3 points again.

Using a scene to create user input may be more complicated, but I know its possible to simply prompt for text input during the macro execution. There's some guidance for this in the help manual (Search "Editing the Macro for User Input").
