Set Orientation

Note: There is a checkbox in View Settings: Ignore zoom and rotation when opening this view. If this is checked, then the displayed view will not use the saved zoom value, but rather the window’s last-used zoom value. Consequently, the rotation will not be seen either. Uncheck the box if you wish to see the saved zoom value in the window, together with the rotation. (Views placed on layouts will always display their saved zoom/rotation.)

Align with Symbol: Text rotates together with the symbol, with no other adjustments.
Always Horizontal: Text remains fixed in a horizontal position on screen, regardless of the view’s orientation.
In the Settings dialog box (Marker Panel), use the Marker Text Rotation parameter. This may include the following values, depending on the marker type:
Always Horizontal and Always Vertical values will display text horizontally/vertically on screen, regardless of the view’s orientation.
Align with Section Line will keep the text lined up with the Section line, following any view rotation, and will flip the text if necessary to ensure readability.
Align with Section LineNo Flip will keep the text lined up with the Section line, following any view rotation, without any “flip” adjustment for readability.
Standard: Text is always parallel to the wall, and is automatically readable (that is, flipped if necessary after rotation of the view).
Align with Marker Line: Text remains fixed in line with the marker line and is automatically readable.
