portrait cross sections

I am on to something but a bit stuck. I am trying to set up portrait cross sections. I can get my views to create a grid and such that look correct, however when putting them on sheets, it rotate the border, but also the modelspace. Are there certain settings in the sheet creation or the dwt file I need to review to do portrait sections?

Thanks.3-29-2013 8-18-50 AM.png

I've never seen anyone else trying to create section views in this way.  The software is set up to present them in a normal horizontal layout and I cannot see any way to force it to show them rotated as you want.


I have to ask why you're trying to do this.  It's certainly possible to layout the sheet in Landscape so that you can view and edit the sheets in a normal viewpoint, and then rotate them to Portrait during the plotting operation.

I agree with sboon and think that better way would be to use portrait plot setting. One other thing you may try to use MVSETUP command and rotate your view. It may not look pretty but it can be done.
