I am working on a plan in revit arch 2008.  the plan has to be oriented with north to the left hand side of the sheet to fit at 1/16" scale.  changing the paper is not an option.  my question is this; why does revit only let you orientate you room names veritcal and horizontal?  it gives no option for vertical left or vertical right.  same thing for the drawing title, does it always put the title at the south side of the drawing?  how do I overide this.

 thanks,

Adam B.

How are you rotating the plans to make the north side be on the left? There are several ways to do it, and you may not be using the one that will give you your desired results.

I would suggest you use the Plan North/Project North settings. You should rotate the model to the orientation you want on your documents. The use "Rotate True North" to change the direction of true north. Then you don't have to worry about rotating anything on your sheets, everything is already oriented the way it should be. Look through the help documentation and search this forum for project north and plan north, that should help you out quite a bit.

 

Edit

There is a Cadclip that explains True/Project North fairly well:
