Plant tag alignment and rotated plans
Chickpea posted a topic in Site DesignHelp please, I am finding it impossible to insert plants onto a rotated plan and get the tags to behave. Desperate to know how to resolve this asap. This plan is rotated -134. The tag text is upside down, whichever way i rotate it. I have tried inserting plants to an unrotated view, but as soon as I rotate to a view that would work on a sheet layer... upside down and all over the place.
Stake object Easting & Northing coordinates don't match XY
Christiaan posted a question in TroubleshootingWhat am I doing wrong here? The easting/northing coordinates of this Stake object don't match the x/y coordinates in the OIP. The coordinates in the OIP are what I'm expecting to see. This is also the Internal Origin. But there's an offset of figures that I don't recognise: X 35173.833 Y 18765.589 I thought maybe because I'm using rotated view. But going back to zero degrees doesn't resolve it. If I change the stake object label reference to "Coordinate Point (XY)" (in metres) it reports the correct figures. test_file_v2022.vwx test_file_v2023.vwx
Dynamically rotate text to align to screen
Mike T posted a question in Wishlist - Feature and Content RequestsI'd like to know if it's possible (and if not, add to Wishlist) to dynamically rotate text to align with the current view. For example: If working in Rotated Top/Plan view, I'd like certain text labels to automatically rotate to 0° based on the current view. In practice, I'm working on plans that are geographically referenced, and while working and presenting, it makes sense to rotate it away from north being at the top, because the site layout is "gridded" at a different angle. It means that all my text labels are constantly having to be adjusted as I move though different angles of Rotated Top/Plan view. It would also be useful to have the same feature within viewports for the same reason. Perhaps an option in the object info pallet to choose the rotation either being world based or screen based? Also, perhaps this extends beyond just simple text labels and applies to data tags & symbols too?
Rotated plans that I didn't rotate?
AmandaM22 posted a question in TroubleshootingHey again, I appreciate you all so much while I navigate this program for a pretty major undertaking of updating all of our drawings. So this time, not a seating problem. This time, on this one drawing, my plans are showing up rotated, but I don't remember if or when I rotated them? Is there a way to fix that that permanently changes the rotation and doesn't give you the option to look at Top/Plan or Rotated Top/Plan? I have attached an image as well that shows what I'm looking at. I put the PDF I'm working off of into another drawing just to see if it kept the rotation, and it did. Thanks in advance for the help!
99% of the time I work in rotated plan, placing plants directly on the design layer (I know it's possible to place them on sheet layers and avoid rotation-based issues, but I explicitly don't want to do this). Problems are 2: 1) Plants disappear when placed. They can (usually) be brought back by toggling "unified view", though weirdly it doesn't matter whether it's toggled to off or to on. Presumably this has to do with the working plane in rotated plan, but I can't figure out what the problem is or how to fix it. 2) The rotation of the plants themselves (in the OIP) are at the plan rotation, not 0, which creates havoc with the plant tags. Screenshot shows "disappeared" Osmanthus symbol. If I toggle Unified View OFF it reappears!!! I can deal with the second problem by realigning tags and leaders (somewhat arduous), but the first problem is now close to intolerable. Plant tool has _always_ been a nightmare, but I've now realised how ridiculous it is that with big jobs it's actually now quicker to work by hand, which shouldn't be the case. Can anybody help? -------------------- Windows 10 VW2016
