Hi all -

We started building a project in one orientation, and have set the true north properly.  The building has grown along its vertical axis, and now we'd like to rotate the PROJECT north by 90 degrees to better fit on the sheets.

I know we could rotate the "view on sheet" but don't want to have to do this for every plan, rcp, callout, etc. as the project matures. 

Does anyone know how to rotate a project north?  Is the only way to do this to physically rotate all the elements in a project?  Please advise. 

Thanks!

Jen

Thanks.

We just recieved the same response from AutoDesk directly.  Apparently they are looking into adding this functionality to leter releases.

I think Autodesk should address this problem earlier. If we can rotate both Project North and True North, that help a lot when doing site plan for large project.

hi if you dont plan on doing shadow studies then just use the true north position but rotate it by 90 degrees or else you can link the progect into another project and rotate it by 90 degrees and set up the sheets in there. i know neither or these are ideal but just a few more options for you.

Until Autodesk can add this functionality, the work-around would be to edit the family for your Project and True North tags. Simply rotate the lines indicating "North" on each tag to point in the direction you call north. This basically means that the tag will be facing "west" or "east" or "south" and calling that north. When you insert it into your drawing, however, it will actually be pointing in the direction you desire...without requiring that you rotate your actual geometry.
