Sorry if this is confusing and I doubt it's possible but thought I'd ask anyway just in case. Is there a way to have the Angle type set to Compass, but still be able to identify lines so they report the pitch based on the relationship to the screen? I want to be able to relate all my plan views to Compass North, but I also have dumb 2D elevations, details & sections in the file, I'd like the pitch readout to always related to as if I am looking at an elevation on screen right side up. Isn't this type of use generally the only time the pitch readout would be useful or am I missing something that might use pitch on a plan view? I would think for plans angles would be used and not pitch.
