I am testing HighDesign R5 and R6 and I can not rotate a plan to trace guides to draw the elevation from that plan.
When I rotate the plan (walls, windows and doors) I lose the windows and doors, they fo not rotate even if I group all the elements.
So the question is how do you draw the elevation from each plan ?
Thanks a lot
There was a thread a while ago about the ability to easily rotate a plan to draw sections and elevations. This is an area where we are going to add more features in the near future, and the first, as anticipated, will be underlays. With an underlay, you won't need to duplicate the items as the floorplan will be automatically visible on the elevation sheet, like a Detail sheet.
I've used this workflow for years. I think the exception are two things: I don't use guidelines in practice and I don't use Wall and Windows (very much). I just draw everything out old school, use symbols, group and ungroup etc.
The other workflow I've standardized on is to not use Layers in HD. I predominantly use one layer and instead manage content via Sheets.
Hope that helps.
As I said a using the technic to group all necessary elements (walls, doors and windows)but the point is when I rotate them I lose all the doors and windows they do not rotate, that's why I ask how the other HighDesign users are drawing elevations.
I do like the way HighDesign use layers, sheets, but it does not seam stable.
Working now with R6 I notice a issue, the application seems to forget the location of the file we are working on, It already happens twice, I am going to open a new topic to see if there is any fix for that.
Working with HighDesign and not using the existing tools we are not taking the advantages of new tools, I wonder why go you decide to go this way.
Using HD R6 I do not encounter this type of problem, walls and relative openings are correctly rotated. I work on mac intel with Mojave, could it be a bug related to other specific configurations?
