    Rotate Callout View

    Is there any way to rotate my callout view, with rotating the model or the callout itself?

    Basically, I have a callout around my pit openings. They are going north south, but, on my callout view, I put them east west because they are long and they fit on the sheet better that way.

    OR, do I leave the view as is and annotate it, then rotate the view in the sheet instead?

    Edit: Should have read the entire post... You can also rotate the Callout View it self. Select the Crop Region on the Callout View, and use the rotate tool.

    Yep--ditto that.
    ...and on a related subject, a somewhat overlooked or unknown thing about sections is that you can rotate them as well to create "Plan Views"--place a section mark vertically, then rotate, and voila--a new "plan view"--good way to generate special views where you don't need or want a Level or Plan Region.............however, use with discretion.

    Well I'm stupid. I did that and noticed the callout itself rotated on the plan, so I undid it. I didn't even think to resize the callout after I rotated it.
