I have been struggling with this for sometime. I need to rotate the lot (including the dashed setback line) 10 degrees counter clockwise. I can not find the correct grouping to accomplish it, this maybe related to how close the house sits next the the setback. I start with rotating everything 10 degrees and the try to rotate just the house back to 90. Instead it also moves the setback with the house instead of keeping it 30’ from the property lines.
I have attached the file if anyone would be so kind as to give it a try or steps I should be taking.
I use Chief for a semi-production home builder. We have stock plans that are customized. I want to be able to draw my plans with the front door side down, but when you send the layout box linked to a camera view to the layout page, you cannot rotate it.
So, I have to rotate my plan layout pages to fit the side view on our 11x17 paper. Rotating the title block and the layout-box itself is fine, but the dimensions text rotates incorrectly. All our text boxes face right or down.
When I rotate the plan-layout-box to the right, the text stays facing right, (now up) but the dimensions turn so they are now facing left / down.
When I rotate the plan-layout-box to the left, the text stays the way it should still, but now the up-down dimensions rotate to the right/up.
I have tried all alternatives around the "rotate with plan" checkbox in the dimension defaults.
Can anyone help me keep the dimensions the way they are on the plans?
Has anyone had experience with patterns auto rotating? I want to fill in walls with an angled hatch pattern but it rotates when the wall direction changes. In Revit the fill pattern stays the same across the plan no matter what angle the wall is and I think that looks better and more consistent. Is there a way to shut this auto rotate off? I've tried everything short of changing it back to just a solid fill.
I am trying to rotate my floor plan 90 degrees to the left so it will fit better on the final layout sheets.
I have turned on the all on layer set then highlighted the entire floor plan with a marquee. When I do this no edit handles appear to click
onto to rotate the plan. I can select individual items in the plan and the edit handles appear. But when I select the entire floor plan no edit
I tried using the rotate plan view at the bottom of the tolls menu, but that rotates everything in the plan file even the door and window schedules.
How do I rotate the floor plans only?
I am trying to rotate an arc while keeping one end of the arc stationary. I also tried this with a simple line. The line will let you
rotate it around it's center point but not locking one end and rotating around that end.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
