Door Stamp Issue

Hello,

I have created a door and a window stamp but I'm having an issue where the stamp gets placed upside down when placing doors/windows at a certain angle. Is this a setting I can change in ArchiCAD or is it something I have to build into the object? If I have to build it into the object, what would I have to use to determine whether it is flipped or not?

Thanks

If You open any opening stamp You will see something like that:

rrr = REQUEST ("View_Rotangle", "", angleViewRot)
totalRotate = (SYMB_ROTANGLE + angleViewRot)
if totalRotate > 360 then totalRotate = totalRotate - 360
and then before texblock

place something like that:
if not ((textAngle > 90.0001-90) and (textAngle < 270.0001-90))  then 	rot2 180 else rot2 0
 !here should go textblock and all transformations of the coords with apriopriate del's
del 1
the "-90" in the angle is optional - in this case I had to have the text _always horizontal_

Where did you get textAngle from?

Sorry it has to be declared before the request to avoid errors

Hello,

Is there a way to get this to respond to the workspace orientation too?

Thanks very much

rrr = REQUEST ("View_Rotangle", "", angleViewRot)

this request reads the rotated view angle
