Room Label and Standard Area Calc

Recommended Posts

We have a plan that when sent to layout needs to be turned 90 clockwise.   I had the room labels set to rotate with the plan and that was working fine, however when I have the standard area calc turned on the "room name" and "std area" seem to overlap each other.

 

i tried to put the std area on its own text style and click ROTATE and unclick it - neither seemed to make any difference.

 

i also tried to put a text box with a macro - which works but getting the text box in the right location for viewing in both 0(d) and 90(d) was not working

 

Any good way to rectify this?

Mark,

 

It looks like you could be using Rotate Plan View to do the rotation.

BEWARE of this tool.

It rotates the drawing "board" which means that it also rotates the co-ordinate system - meaning that zero degrees is no longer at 3 o'clock.

Also, it will not rotate the view in layout.

I never use the rotate plan tool for many reasons. Only the layout box is rotated once sent to layout - I want to maintain the orientation of the labels. The "Rotate Plan" tool and the Layout box rotation delivers the same result.

 

Perhaps rotating the entire plan all floors would be the best bet.
