Level Dimension Rotation with Rotate Plan View




We're creating 2 sets of plans in different scales and different views; 1:100 (0 degrees rotation) and 1:50 (90 degrees rotation). Apart from the zones flying around (which is another issue I'm trying resolve, it seems that the dimension rotation currently are fixed for all view.


I'm sure there should be an efficient way to do this that I may have missed.


Hoping for a quick response.

I haven’t looked as I don’t have Archicad open right now but is there an option in the Zone Label/Stamp to be always readable and the same for the dimensions? I though there was a way to fix the rotation to always appear horizontal. I’ll have a look when I open Archicad.

There is a setting within the Zone Stamp to either rotate with the view, or be at a fixed angle. When turned on, manual Zones will rotate around their center point, while "Smart" Zones for it will rotate around their room reference node.
