    Tilte Drawing

    Hello everybody,
    I am new to Revit and taking classes at a Community College, while I was doing my drawing I rotated the canvas and when I was done i set it back but incorrectly, now I can't set it back to have my lines straight in the entire drawing. I am probably off by a degree or something but every time I try to make it straight it does not work. I thought it was the screen until I open another lesson with the similar drawing and the lines are straight on that one, I have try to align with coordinates and every line I draw is not straight. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    I asked the teacher and he can't figure it out either.

    Thank you.

    Revit doesn't like rotating by tiny increments.
    Try rotating it by something like 20 or 30 degrees, and then rotate back using the snaps.
    Or if you can get a model line or a model at exactly 0 degrees, rotate your model off again, and then use Align to get it back

    Thank you Dave,

    The small increment was not intentional, it probably happen when I was setting the drawing back to zero.
    "Or if you can get a model line or a model at exactly 0 degrees, rotate your model off again, and then use Align to get it back" I have tried but every time I draw a new line is given in the same minute angle. We try rotating the drawing by a different degrees and set it back to 0 and same result, even the teacher try. The site plan is correct align to north 0 and looks correct the lines are straight. The shifting lines is on the actual floors.
    I also try to align to straight line using the coordinates, but since that the line is in the same drawing the result is the same.
    I also check the survey point and north orientation and they are both at 0.

    Creating a new floor plan should fix the problem.
    view -> plan views -> floor plan -> uncheck do not duplicate… -> level 2
