When rotating a drawing, the dimension text is flipped.


When rotating a drawing, the dimension text is flipped.
How can I obtain normal dimensional text positions?

 1. Rotated 180 degrees.
So far, these are the dimensions I want.

2. I placed it in the layout, but it was not rotated 180 degrees as in the view,

so I rotated it 180 degrees as shown below.

How can I create the same dimensions as the view in Layout?

we never rotate drawings 180 degrees.

90° perhaps -- a tall building laid horizontally on a landscape-oriented sheet -- but never 180°.

the reason is it because it stuffs up the dimension text locations, text orientations & some labels.


better to rotate the view in your floor plan, document, save the view & place it on your layout.
