Rotating Reference Files in Microstation J

Rotating Reference Files in Microstation J

Rotating Reference Files in Microstation J

(OP)
In a few files I've been working in, I have only been able to rotate the reference files by an angle that is an integer (I input the exact angle I want, hit return, and the display automatically changes the angle to an integer). I've noticed that in most of the Microstation files I've created, I can rotate the reference files by ANY angle, up to 4 decimal places.

I've tried reloading the reference files, to no avail. I've tried looking under Preferences and other menus, to no avail! I've asked about 3 other colleagues, to no avail!

If anyone can help me out, I'd be grateful.

RE: Rotating Reference Files in Microstation J

YOU MIGHT TRY CHECKING OUT THE ANGLE ACCURACY ON THE COORDINATE READOUT. THIS IS IN THE DESIGN FILE SETTINGS (UNDER SETTINGS ON THE TOP TOOL BAR).

I put the message on the wrong thread, I put my question on the previous thread.  Do you put the logical name in the mdl routine twice?
