I've tried to attach a screenshot of my beam element properties, because I've heard from one other user that this instance parameter doesn't display when she views element properties on a beam.
My question is this: What does the Orientation instance parameter define, what options are there other than "Normal," and what releases this field to be editable? there are other greyed out fields in instance parameters, such as the z-Direction Offset Value, but this value becomes live when "other" is selected for Justification. Is there something else that has to be changed to allow you to change orientation?
But most importantly... what happens to the beam if you manage to change Orientation?
