Recommended Posts

If I understand your query ???


Chief is already set for North to be the top of the screen


it is recommended to have the "front door" face the bottom of the screen


rotate the terrain as needed to match the house

Do you mean that you want zero degrees to be up and angles measured clockwise?

If so, click the Number Style button at the bottom of a lot of dbx's.


Select Quadrant Bearing or Azimith Bearing.

Note that this setting only changes the appearance of the angles in dbx's - no angles displayed in the drawing.. 


If you want to change the angle format  for a line with Show Length checked, you need to change the default setting at Defaults...Cad...General Cad...Display Line Angle As.


Angular dimensions have their own setting in their dbx.
