Design Master Text is Rotated

Tuesday, September 28th, 2010

Problem: When you insert text using Design Master, it is rotated at an odd angle.

Solution: This happens when the AutoCAD DVIEW command has been used to rotate the background. The solution is to untwist the drawing, then rotate it using the standard ROTATE command.

  1. Type DVIEW at the command line and press enter. You will be prompted to select objects.
  2. Type ALL and press enter. You will be prompted to select objects again.
  3. Press enter. You will be prompted to enter an option.
  4. Type TW for twist and press enter. You will be prompted for the twist angle.
  5. Make a note of the current twist angle listed between the angled brackets. You will need this value in a later step.
  6. Type 0 and press enter. Everything on your drawing will rotate. This undoes the twist that is causing the problem with Design Master.
  7. Type ROTATE at the command line and press enter. You will be prompted to select objects.
  8. Type ALL and press enter. You will be prompted to select objects again.
  9. Press enter. You will be prompted to specify a base point.
  10. Type 0,0 and press enter. You will be prompted to specify a rotation angle.
  11. Enter the angle from step 5 above. This will rotate the background back to what it was before.

Everything should be rotated the same way it was when you started, except the Design Master text should be drawn correctly.

You might have to zoom or pan around the drawing to locate your building, depending upon how it was located in the drawing.
