    I think I've heard somewhere about RAC2015... Or maybe I was just imagining...

    This is one of the reasons I no longer pay a subscription. Autodesk is more interested in spending our subsrciption on competing with the opposition, not on fixing problemsand bugs, you only need to look at the list of "known issues" that carry over from release to release to see that they are not interested in fixing the problems that plaque us every working day.

    The Autodesk WikiHelp has a wonderful picture showing contour labels right side up:

    Do you think they did that with Revit??

    I just use spot elevations with no leaders or tag symbols - workaround # 2512...until they explain how they did in in the wikihelp.

    Couldn't create a new thread for that comment instead of digging up a 3 year old thread?

    I've met Civil Engineers who say that this is consistent with their standards (read facing "up hill"), that's the story from the factory as well. So we may consider it a bug but it works as intended based on input they received originally. Naturally architects have complained about it bitterly ever since...

    Okay, I remember this from my Civil Desktop days too....I had to rotate the text a bit to make it read right side up

    I sort of like it. Makes it easy to know quickly which way a particular area of the site is sloping.
