Possible To Tilt The Cross Hairs?


Recommended Posts

No, you can't rotate the crosshairs.

But you can get the same functionality by using Additional Angles and then turning on Display Angle Snap grid.

This will add the Additional Angle to the 7.5 degree increments.

You can then also see the angle you are dragging in the status bar as a check.


The only drawback is that you have to have the 7.5deg increments as well as your additional angle, which gets a bit confusing as to what the angle is, but a quick check on the status bar will confirm the angle and it is easy to dynamically drag the line around to the correct angle.

I would like to extend this post. I have a garage set at a 45 degree angle from the house and the cross hairs. I need to select the garage, which is connected by a breezway, and move it. the roof and foundation 2 ft closer to the house. The edit area creates an edit box that is orthogonal to the display and cross hairs. I know that it (edit box) is editable, but is there an easier way to create a rotated edit box around my garage?
