Issue with Dynamic North Arrow in Map 3D

Hi guys,

We have created a file in Map 3D 2014, but when we want to add a dynamic north arrow to the viewport it rotates the north arrow in the wrong direction. In the model space the N is point in the right direction but the dynamic north arrow does not want work correctly.

Does this have to do with any drawing setups or maybe the coordinate system?


Appreciate any feedback on this, thanks.

I noticed that my north arrow gets effected by locked or unlocked viewport. When I want to have a dynamic north arrow to be rotated right, I need to lock the viewport first, then insert the north arrow to link it. If I linked the north arrow to unlocked viewport, and lock it after linking, it does not work. Hope this helps.
