Graphical Class Styles

I have been trying to create symbols that were not included. I have not been able to figure out how to determine which direction to rotate the symbol when put added to the drawing. I have attempted this by creating a block in another drawing, then adding that block as a Graphical Class Style in the project I am currently working on. But when I add this symbol, it wants to rotate the symbol rotated 90 degrees in the wrong direction. Any ideas on how I can change this setting? Thank you in advance.

Hi Mish,

The software assumes that the symbols direction is drawn on the X-axis and
attempts to align it with the flow direction of the line. Is the symbol
being used as an inline instrument? If you can provide the symbol, I'll be
happy to take a look at it.

Regards,


Jorge
