Can you please tell me how I rotate a view within paper space? I have used the help function and all I can see is the 'VIEWCTL' command. I have tried to follow the instructions but I can't seem to get it to do anything. In AutoCAD I think the command was called 'MVSETUP' which allowed you to rotate a view by any angle. Does Progecad have a similar command?
This frequent question has been posted here before. VIEWCTL should be pretty straightforward. It works pretty much as ddvpointwould in AutoCAD.
You simply need to make the viewport active before using it, simply by double-clicking inside of it. For example we have the following in model space:
Switching to Paper Space we see a default single full-page viewport with zero degree rotation. We double click INSIDE the viewport so that the viewport border is highlighted as so:
Next we actually go and fire up VIEWCTL. We will turn the plan view 90 degrees about its normal axis (Z in this case):
Remember to click OK or else the preview will revert back to original orientation. After possible zoom-all and manual panning refocus whist still within the viewport, the result should appear as so:
Remember that you will need to double-click OUTSIDE of the viewport to regain control of general paper space.
