How to align fills according to graphic orientation


My site is a little slanted so I adjusted it, because it's quite difficult to make anything slanted so I changed the graphic orientation to straight, so I wanted the fills on the slab to remain straight when I changed the orientation. Can it?

Hi @mrsneuna,

You can set slab fill to follow the graphical rotation by adjusting the cover fill orientation to be linked to Fill origin.

** Additional tip regarding (Construction Grid),

If you like the grid to fit your graphical orientation, you can set it as attached below:

Can the fills be straightened automatically? I have made a lot of fills

I'm sorry, I think it can't be solved for all fills by one click as every fill has its own rotation.

However, you can create a wish for that, it may be applied someday.
