the little green rotate dot for points

Does anyone know how to get the little green rotate circle back in C3D 2012 and 2013? 

 

When you click on a point in 2011 (at least my setup), there is a little green circle that pops up that I can click on and rotate the point around.  In 2012, I have to click on the point, then right click on it, then select rotate label, only then can I rotate the thing.

 

Thanks

Hover over the grips, you will be given the options to rotate.10-16-2012 8-14-20 AM.png

this isn't working for me.  I'm in C3D 2012.  when i set up my point styles in 2011, it worked like you suggest with hovering but now it's not.  any advise, do i have a setting off??

 

I will go back to using blocks if it can't be solved... since i have to manually edit the label rotation in the properties and play with the degrees to get it at the angle desired... not cool that it's taking longer.  I spend quite a bit of time setting up these styles for them not to work.

 

Much appreciation!!

Betreff: ***Help*** Lost Rotate Point Grips
09-29-2011 01:27 PM in reply to: dvikse

Hi,

 

they are not globally lost and not stolen :smileywink:

They come up if you use the new "multifunctional grips" as they are designed. Click a Civil-point so it is gripped, then place your cursor over one of the cyan-grips and wait for about half a second (without do any more click) ==> wow, you get a popup with the possibilities to modify the object.

 

And now the bad news:

For AutoCAD-geometry objects you can turn off the new functionality by modifying the sysvar GRIPMULTIFUNCTIONAL, you can decide to use the new method (for a lot of objects) or not.

The bad news are: Civil-objects ignore the setting of the sysvar (at least it looks like it does at the moment/on my current pc), so you have to activate GRIPMULTIFUNCTIONAL or you are not able to rotate anyway. So set it to 3 and have the way now to decide what to rotate, symbol or symbol+text.

 

HTH, - alfred -
