How can I change the axis system of a line or a member?


Right-click the line or the member. In the shortcut menu, select the "Reverse Line Orientation" or "Reverse Member Orientation" option (see Figure 01).

Rotation of the line or member axis system is possible by using a rotation angle, which you can define in the "Edit Line" or "Edit Member" dialog box (see Figure 02). As an alternative, you can orientate the member to a help node.
