X6 CAD. Rotate polyline to match angle of other CAD object

Recommended Posts

A common need when drawing details.  I draw a roof edge section, then want to add some doodles to the roof, up at that 8:12 or whatever pitch.

 

What works to rotate a newly-drawn polyline, or box, or a blocked group, or whatever, to match the pitch?  

 

Not a line or a segment, but the whole thing.  Is copy and paste the angle the quickest route?  Works, but wonder if there is something else.

If you double click the "parallel" tool you will get a dialog that will allow you to choose to rotate entire object.

 

Perhaps that is what you are looking for Gene?

Ah, double-click.  Who'da thunk it?  

 

What threw me off what that when selecting the entire polyline, the MAKE PARALLEL was not there to choose.  I now just select a line.

 

And double-click.

 

Thanks, Andy.
