    Default angled ortho - simple?

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    This seems like a simple setting but I can not find it. I am working on a drawing that has been created by another firm. Due to the building not having the normal 0/90 walls they have rotated the orthographic projection to a 15 degree angle. When I try and draw a straight line in the "straight" part of the building with my ortho on, it pulls the aperture to 15 degrees. Yes, I could turn my ortho off but would prefer to toggle the angle between 15 degrees and 0/180 degrees. What is the setting to change it and how do I get there?

    Probably the ucs has been rotated, use the ucs command, save option first, give it a name, then use the ucs world option.
    Confusion between than and then
    In writing, than and then are often erroneously interchanged. In standard English, then refers to time, while than is used in comparisons. Wikipedia.com

    Perhaps the SNAPANG has been set to align with the building

    Check SNAPANG and make sure view is set to TOP.
