Hi, I am having problems when I place a C channel in the fact that when it is placed it faces the wrong way. Sometines the

flip instance arrows appear and that works but more often than not, when I select the C channel I cannot get the blue up & down arrows to appear. 

How do I get them to display all the time so I can easily flip the beam ??

Do you mean in plan or section?

In plan it should always come up, but in section it wont, if your looking at in section and want to flip it, select it, go to instance properties and change the cross section rotation to 180

In plan it won't all the time.

Does the member have to be level? or do you have to be a certain cut plane distance away from the member?

I can't find any consistancy.

Flipping the cross section rotation doesn't work for me as it rotates the beam about one of its top corners rather than its center.

The direction of the profile is based on the direction you drew the channel (clockwise, counter clockwise).

Draw one from left to right and another right to left and the profiles will be opposite.

With that said, I have no idea why the flip control would not show up. It's in the family it should be there.

It could be an issue with multiple connections or a different family and it wasn't added?

 

As for changing the cross section rotation...if you want it to flip on center you need to change the z-Direction Justification to center.
