Am trying to rotate an illustration in Isodraw with callouts so that I can import to Arbortext Editor.The problem is that although the illustraion is easily rotated the callout numbers remain the same. I could save the illustration in another format but then I will lose the intelligence in the callouts.
Thank you for your quick response! I am working with 2D objects. Please find attached as 2 JPs (if that is ok). As you can see the callouts remain the same when the illustration is rotated. The problem is that I want to insert this into Arbotext as shown in “rails un-rotated” but with the callouts written in the right direction. I want to avoid change the style sheet in Abortext Editor. The first image is rotated.
Ah, you just need the callout text to be rotated 90 deg.? Not sure it's possible in IsoDraw.
Moreover, I don't think it's a good idea to try to have the illustration stored in "rotated" orientation as you're trying to do - methodologically I'd say it's preferred to store it in "non-rotated" orientation and rotate it "on demand" during publishing. If today you only need to publish publishing to Print/PDF, having the illustration stored "pre-rotated" could seem to be OK, but if tomorrow you'd need to publish the same illustrated catalog to another format, say, HTML, you'd still need to find a way to rotate the image during the publishing (I'm not considering the option to have 2 copies - "rotated" and "non-rotated" of the same image).
Also, looking at the pdf you attached, I have another though - are your customers OK with reading such rotated graphics on the next page to the non-rotated page with list of parts? Have you considered changing the page layout (have smaller illustration but "horizontally" oriented or printing illustration on A3)?
