draft analysis V5r10 (tricky???! or is it just me?)

We have just switched to V5 from V4, and are having a little trouble with analyzing draft on models. The difficulty arises in setting the pulling direction. On our set-up, it automatically defaults to 'Y', and although we can use the compass to change the postion by dragging, we cannot 'set' it exactly to the desired pulling direction. Surely there is a simple way of doing this (as in V4 draft analysis????)

RE: draft analysis V5r10 (tricky???! or is it just me?)

A simple one would be to create a plane normal to the pulling direction then drag the compass onto that plane.

But this is not automatic like you wanted. Though it's should take you long.
