Hello - I am a landscape designer and new to Vectorworks, working with version 2019 in Windows 10.
I would like to import a PDF of a site plan (exported from AutoCAD), and another PDF of a house floor plan (also exported from AutoCAD, so both PDFs are vector-based). The site plan includes a simple outline footprint of the house, but it is at a different scale and a different angle than the floor plan PDF.
I've figured out how to import each PDF into separate Vectorworks files, and get them at the same scale I wish to work in (1/8" = 1'-0"), and calibrated, etc. I realize that I can then copy one to paste into the other so that they can each be on their own design layer within one Vectorworks file. My goal is to do that and then align them so that I can trace lines from each imported drawing to create my hardscape and planting plans (on different layers from the import layers I've created).
QUESTION: How do I rotate the site plan so that it will align with the floor plan. The former has a different orientation than the latter, which is parallel with the sheet border/title block. When I use the Rotate Plan tool it rotates everything (all layers). Once I rotated the site plan I thought I could copy it over to the Vectorworks file containing the imported floor plan, but it doesn't maintain the rotation.
Thanks for your help!
