2D parts Projected view change

Mazie_HouchensMazie_Houchens Member Posts: 33 PRO

Is there any way to change the Projected Views tool in the drawings from the default to backwards? I have to reorient all of my parts after using the tool because they are on the wrong side of what i need.
(like i drag the view to the left and i get the right side of the part)

    ISO drawing formats are set to first angle projection - ANSI ones are third angle which is what you are looking for. You can also create custom drawing templates which may work better for you.

    Why does ISO default to first-angle? All the drawings I have done are ISO with third-angle projection.

    @MBartlett21 same here! Seems first angle is historically the ISO way of doing things but accepts both. Most of Europe except for Germany and France (I think) use third angle.
