    Default Detail Component Manager

    When using the detail component manager, is there a way to select a different orientation for the components that you are bringing in? For example, when pulling in a steel shape, it brings the shape in as a section, rather than in elevation. When inserting the metal deck component it draws it in the orientation parallel with the metal deck, rather than in a perpendicular orientation to the metal deck.

    Is there a way to toggle between these different orientations with the detail component manager?

    Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    Yes, look at the properties box before you place the item. There's a pull down that allows you to select section, plan or elevation for just about ever component in the library.

    You just can't toggle them after they've been placed.

    It depends how the ootb componants are setup, when you insert a steel column for example, if you have the properties palette open you can change between section, elevation and plan.

    Is this what you mean or have I misunderstood you?
