Prevent label legend text from right reading?

Recommended Posts

Hey All,


I have a show coming up where the the room is split in two and has the same rig in both, just mirrored.  This means that the fixtures in room 1 have a rotation of 0º and the fixtures in room 2 have a rotation of 180º.


My challenge is the label legends.  The text is showing up in the correct locations but rotated 180º on the design layer.  Once I go over to a sheet layer, they are fine.


Is there a way to change the way the text reads in design space?  It's no biggie, just a little annoying to look at data that is backwards as I've created a saved view that rotates the room 180º so we can be in the correct orientation as we detail the show out.


Thanks in advance.

Go to your Document Settings (File>Document Preferences), and turn on Adjust Flipped Text. This is usually on by default, and can be set independently in Viewports.
