Have a project which was created with project North been off by 180 degrees. My linked site into project is correct, I can rotate my views to true north but my site plan is off.

I've tried selecting my entire building, unpinning everything, and made into a group to rotate but get too many errors of constraints and deleting objects.

My site view is set to true north, my linked site is correct, but my bldg is not.

I need to get my bldg to line up with my site which is correct. 


Any suggestions or work arounds are appreciated.

Ahh, modelling the building with an incorrectly rotated project north is a big no no.  When you start a project you should always model in the orientation that you want to show on your sheets...

If you can't rotate your building (in 2008 did you try grouping or setting as a link and then rotating?) then i would suggest you rotate your site to match your building.

Then on each sheet you can rotate the crop region the 180 degrees to flip the building up the correct way.  Its annoying to have to do this for every view but it will save you redocumenting work you've already done.

I figured out a way to get it done. Not sure if its correct or not but it works and its done. I ended up going to my site view and adjusted the true north until my bldg was oriented correctly on my site. My site is still in its original position and my view properties for my site view is set to true north. All my other views are set to project north, I did what you said Mr. Spot just rotate my crop regions.

Thanks for the suggestions


This will be the last time I take an architects word on the direction of the north arrow!
