Another limitation. Got it. Thank you for clarifying. Frustrating as some of us use the rectangular geometry method a lot.
This issue is related to another concern we have in setting up new projects. We recently thought to orient a project site to view north, and then rotate each building view to the preferred orthogonal orientation for best fit on layouts. So, for example, if a building is a 'V' shape, why bother starting with one or the other arms of the 'V' oriented orthogonally to the view? Why not just start with site plan north oriented to the non-rotated view with up on screen or 'y' axis as north. Then rotate each view on layouts. Easy, right?
But then we get issues like rectangular geometry method in 3D not working for us even though we set a new grid/edit plane to the preferred model orientation.
Any other surprises here? Other limitations in this setup?
Is it best to simply setup the model with one preferred orthogonal direction to the view and then use Set Project North tool?
