upside down callouts

Recommended Posts

I suspect it's user error, but I can't find it. Any ideas as to why my callout numbering is upside down? I thought perhaps I'd rotated the plan, but that doesn't seem to make a difference. In fact, when I attempt to rotate the plan it doesn't rotate.

I'm guessing you used the Rotate Plan View tool which essentially just rotates your entire "drawing board". Use the same tool to rotate it back. If you want to rotate the plan back to where it was use Edit Area or another method.

I thought so too but it makes no difference when I attempt to rotate it.

Adam,

 

I think you have used Rotate Plan View AND you have the Text Style for Callouts set to Rotate With Plan. 

My advice is to NEVER use Rotate Plan View, and/or uncheck Rotate With Plan for the callout text - either in the Text Style or Use Custom Text Style.

Here's the plan. I agree, one shouldn't rotate a plan and I rarely, if ever, do. But because of the weird callouts I tried, but it doesn't rotate.

Rotate Plan View WAS the culprit.  When you open that dbx you'll see that its set to 180 degrees.  Simply set it back to zero.

That's bizarre. I swear I tried that a half dozen times. Now I've done it and it works. I'm losing my mind. Thanks so much!

 You bet.  I'm guessing what you probably did was try to rotate it 180 degrees to put it back to normal.  That setting is an absolute setting though so 180 degrees would do nothing.
