Orientation button disabled?

Hello. I'm using Falcon in Inventor. I would like to use the "Front (XY)" button.  I expect this to switch the air flow to go along a different axis.  The button is disabled.  How do I enable it?

That button refers to the orientation of a slice plane if you have one present in the model. When you are showing flow lines or particles, changing the orientation of the plane shouldn't affect anything in the model. It should be grayed out.


Currently there is only a 3D directional control for the air flow. This is the compass and it is set in a fixed plane. If you need to change the orientation, for now there are two options:


1) Re-orient the CAD (make a master level assembly and you can re-orient however you like)

2) Use Falcon standalone instead of the embedded versions


Admittedly, neither of these is ideal. We are looking into some reorientation options in the future.
