Plan Rotation

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I am sure this is a simple duh moment but I started a new plan and all of my text is now sideways.  I have searched and all found is info on plan rotation (which I did not do....unless accidently).  I must have changed a setting by accident and cannot find a way to change it back for the life of me.  Would someone please be able to help me hang my head in shame for not seeing the obvious issue? Just starting the plan so I can quickly get going again but I have spent too much time looking for a post on this now to give up.  lol

Looks like you rotated the plan view by accident. Just rotate it back -90º. Tools>Rotate Plan View...

That was my first thought.  When I do the rotation, nothing changes.  I saved the plan after rotation, closed out of chief, reopened and still no change.  Its very strange.  When I do get it to rotate -90 it actually flips 180.  I should note its just the text that should be (rotated 90 clockwise) in the top post to be correct.

  1. Please check your messages.
  2. For problems like this, attaching the plan file will help others troubleshoot.
  3. What happens when you start a new plan? Same problem?

Check your labels text style and see if it is set to "Rotate with Plan".   Sounds like you should have it deselected.

You should rotate it back to zero.  If you want the house oriented 90 degrees off what it is at zero, then do that by using Edit Area (All Floors).

Thank you everyone!  The template must have been saved rotated from a past plan.  I haven't posted here before and cant believe how quick everyone was with help!  I will setup my signature and always post a plan files in the future.  

 

Cheers
