I am trying to link my site plan (Revit Drawing) into a project. The property line tags (dimensions and bearings) don't link in. If I bind the site plan I can tag the lines but when I rotate the site plan so that I have my building in the orthagonal orientation (verticle/horizontal) the tags are no longer accurate. I have tried using shared coordinates and published coordinates but this doesn't seem to work. How can I have accurate dimensions and bearings with a site that is rotated?

Shared coorninates can be tricky at first.

1. set up the site in one file with True north Up..Just like a Survey would be.

2. Set up your building in another file oriented how ever you want.

3. link in the Building to your site. Rotate and move the building to where it needs to be.

4. Publish the coordinates to that linked file. Save and Click yes to update the Building File. You can't have the building file open when you are trying to publish the Coordinates.

5. Open the Building file and Link in the site. (it is not a circular link) When linking use place with Shared Coordinates.

6. Watch the site place it self exactly in the same spot relative to the building as in the Site file. Cool.. Now you will have the ability to orient the view to true north or project north.
