Interior Elevation Rotation

There is an ARCHICAD 23 update coming soon (as I have heard from GSNA today) that will fix an issue with interior elevation markers placed into rotated plan views.

I want to start by saying we should avoid rotated floor plan views as much as possible. They have always had a laundry list of unintended consequences. Most recently, we have discovered that if an interior elevation marker is placed into a floor plan with any rotation other than 0º, the resulting elevations will also be rotated. Since this seems to be a bug that attaches itself to the marker, the easiest fix is to redo the marker placement (either by placing a new marker or dragging a copy of an existing marker) in a properly rotated floor plan, then deleting the original.

Floor plan rotation is in the bottom left menu bar of the floor plan window

If you find an interior elevation that is rotated:

Go to the floor plan, drag the marker off to the side of the building a set distance. Set the floor plan rotation to 0º, then drag a copy of that marker back into place.Screen Shot 2020-07-15 at 10.15.58 AM

Save the new marker’s viewpoints to the view map, making sure to check the “ignore zoom and rotation” box in the view settings of all new interior elevation markers and views.

In the preview hotfix as well as in ARCHICAD 24, this is no longer an issue. But for the near future, we need to avoid placing I/E markers in any plan view not set to 0º rotation.
