Rotate titles in layouts

KeesW

I sometimes need to rotate a view on my layouts - say through 90 degrees. The tile associated with the view rotates with the view. How can I NOT rotate the title with the view? I prefer to keep the titles horizontal, even when views are rotated. Any ideas?

I don't have Archicad in front of me at the moment but I think rotating the view in Archicad rather than rotating the drawing on the layout will work for you.
The rotation angle is in the bar along the bottom of the view window.

Kees:

Check the Title parameters (in the Title panel of the Drawing Settings). For the Built-In Drawing Title there is a parameter Rotate with Position, turn it off and there should be a Custom Angle parameter for the Title. These are GDL entities, so each Title's parameters could be different.

You don't rotate the View in the Layout. You save a new View (or duplicate a Saved View) with the rotation that you need.
If I remember correctly:
• Rotate the view using the button shown in the image
• Save the View and make sure that choose "Zoom Area" as view option

I merged your 2 topics since they were the same question. Please avoid posting twice the same question, it makes our work harder.
