    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.

    Perhaps the SNAPANG has been set to align with the building

    Check SNAPANG and make sure view is set to TOP.
