Reasons To Be Cheerful Part 1 (upgrading to 2008) Rotated Plan View

This week my podcast will show you the rotated plan view in VectorWorks 2008.

If you have a complex plan with rotated parts, you might find, like I do, that drawing the plan in the rotated parts of the building can be a pain.

VectorWorks 2008 has a new plan view called rotated plan. This new view option allows you to rotate the view without rotating the information on the plan.

This allows you to work orthogonally for this part of the building.

When you are finished, you can return to the unrotated plan view to work on other parts of the building.
You can save the rotated plan views as saved views to return to them at any time.
This will be covered in detail in my updated Architect Tutorial Manual for VectorWorks 2008 due late October 2007.
