i've drawn the property lines using the table (they are labeled per 'true north'.and now i need to rotate the site to fit my drawing sheets (project north). i only see a tool to rotate the true north rotation. what i need is a project north rotation that let's me orient the project for documentation without screwing up my site bearing tags. does anyone know how to do this? i've tried..... setting the viewport to true north, rotating the project to the orientation i need and then using the rotate true north command to rotate it back. the north arrow symbol rotates correctly but the property line bearings still show the incorrect bearing?

I have a similar problem. I can rotate the project on my sheet, but then the title rotates with it. Do you have any idea how to rotate the drawing on the sheet and keep the title in the same position? thanks

no easy way here, but you will need to rotate your whole project to project north, redo your boundary (you can always export to DWG and import back into your drawings and use the Pick when doing your boundaries again...  than rotate to true north



you don't have the same problem Smile you are rotating your view on the sheet. I know of no way to rotate just the title...
