I opened a dgn file (saved as a .dwg) that had it's view rotated. the cursor appears rotated in the dwg file as well as the elements. how do i rotate both the cursor and the elements back to
"normal" ?

rotate the whole drawing to the angle that you want and then set your snapang to zero.

This happened to me before too, if you set your angle in ddunits to .00000000 accuracy you will see the rotation of the drawing, rotate it back to zero and go to set your crosshair size to 99% of the screen and it will fix the funny cockeyed. Message was edited by: reggie999
