    Rotate Project North vs In-place Masses

    We have a project in conceptual design. They are using in-place masses. They want to rotate project north, but when they do, everything except the masses rotates.
    I have done some experimenting and conceptual mass families inserted into the project will rotate, but in-place masses will not. Is this a feature or a bug? Am I missing something here, because I really wish they would rotate with everything else...

    Yes, that's my observation as well. In-place families don't respond to the Rotate Project North (RPN) function. They do respond to Rotate True North (RTN). If the project team doesn't worry about True North and places the massing design without regard for it then they can Rotate True North later successfully. RTN is sleight of hand while RPN is really altering the entire model and related views to change orientation. In other words RTN rotates the world under the building and RPN rotates the building on the world.
