Rotate Section Plane

I take it that you are asking whether you can rotate a cross section camera callout view?  If that is the question, then the answer is, no you can not.  This is a real productivity killer IMO.

 

As far as the temp dims are concerned, there is an icon on the left that allows you to toggle temp dims on or off.

Rod,  why do you think this is a productivity killer?  If I remember correctly,  there has been a time or two when I could of used this feature,  but it really was not a big deal to me.

 

So,  how is it a productivity killer?

I just ran into this again today when reversing plan sets for a builder, and is one of the frustrating WHY questions that come up from time to time.  Any sections not perfectly horizontal (assuming you are flipping your plan on the vertical axis) don't reverse with the plan (regardless if you flip your model manually or with the flip plan button), and therefore are all pointing the opposite way of the set up section view.  With no way to flip the section (even manually), you must re-create each section view in your reversed plan to point the correct way.  With many complex sections, this is a real productivity killer, even with cut/paste of your cad work from the old sections.

 

Anyone have a workaround for this?
