Rotating text

  Is there a way to rotate text and other items in place?  I want to select all text and rotate it 90 degrees about itself, so that its origin doesn't move.  Is this possible?



RE: Rotating text

Just select the text and you should be able to move it. Is the text a block of text?

RE: Rotating text

  Well, I mean that I have hundreds of existing pieces of text that I need to rotate about themselves 90 degrees.  As far as I know, I can't do that in Microstation 7, but in version 8 they made a command for it...?

RE: Rotating text

after you select ROTATE tool, if you expand the box at the bottom, there is a "about element center" option that you can try and see if it works for you.

RE: Rotating text

I found out that the "about element center" option was not available in version 7, unfortunately.  :(

RE: Rotating text

there is a mdl to do this called scangle.ma scangle.m it allows you to batch change the Angle, Scale, Size, Font of Text; Scale, size, you'll have to search the net to find it.. I nolonger have it for v7 but you might find it on a vault cd or bentley old public ftp  might still have it..
