Irrigation Tools - Symbol/Component Rotation

Recommended Posts

Another one of those, try, try again until you succeed posts. I posted this awhile ago and included a video, to no avail or answer yet.

 

When using the new irrigation tools, once a pipe is drawn and components are added to it, there is no way to rotate the graphic symbol other than to a true north. What is interesting is that the OIP will show a rotation angle even though the graphic symbol doesn't rotate. You can see the video for a better explanation (sorry, no voice over). https://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/cDX33GQh5g

 

This is really annoying because we almost never get so lucky to work in a true north orientation and our best practice has always been to relate system components and their rotation to the line on which they are placed. It just adds graphic clarity.

 

This problem is also true of any tags or labels that are created from an irrigation object. They cannot be rotated so as to appear horizontal on a sheet layer viewport.

 

This is common practice and I don't understand why the usability hasn't been integrated. We have largely avoided the entire irrigation suite, and this problem is a large reason why.

 

Fix please!
