Cube Axes gone in version 5.3
Creating a box and switching Cube Axis on was a very convenient way to creating grids and annotating dimensions up to version 4.4. ParaView understood that Cube Axes should only annotate the box created.
In version 5.3 , Cube Axis is gone and the closest options are Axes Grid (annotates the whole domain) or Polar Axes (??? no clue).
