Data Source Configuration Rotate Geo Location

IM 2013.

South Africa, configuring data source created in C3D 2013.

Need to use the Rotate option in Geo Location.

In C3D we apply expressions almost everywhere to reverse the signs of the Geo Coord System.

for example... actual coord is Y84000 X29400000

C3D/AutoCAD coord applied is X-84000 Y-2940000

without correcting the Geo Location, the IMX from C3D 2013 will be upside down.

How do I enable the rotate option in Geo Location? - it is disabled.

I found a solution ... still did not get to enable the Rotation Geo Location controls...

But... I found a solution for other South Africans.. Whoever set up IM 2013 included 'rotated' coord systems for us. Users in RSA that reverse signs in C3D need to use the RSA coord systems in IM 2013.

for example, designers would tend to choose Lo-29-WGS - dont do that !! choose: RSA-LO29/01
