Hi. I have a problem with read convention in dimensions. Some "things" in my project are not parallel (are not set to north-south, are a a little bit kinked???) and when i try to dimension them the dims are upside down. I attached the picture to show exactly what my problem is. Thanks for any replies guys.

Why not turn your whole project so the dimensions in green come back to "vertical". 

 

REVIT doesn't like lines slightly off axis and all of yours appear to be.  If you rotated it, maybe everything on the left could be orthogonal.

hi you need to dimension the other way around, by this i mean if you selectedat at thetop of the screen then went down, you should start at the bottom of the screen and work up.

Hi. Kingrevit- your way doesn't work, it doesn't matter how i dimension revit always shows my dims upside down.

WWHUB- The green dim is paralell but the red ones are not. This is just a little piece of the project, so you can't see all the dims. If you saw the whole project you would noticed I have half of the dims paralell and that half are off axis. So if I turn the whole project I will still have some dimensions that will be off axis. That's the main problem.
