    how to rotate 2d pasted inside family ?

    Hi everyone in this , i want to make custom window so : 1-i picked line from autocad file elevation.
    2- then i copied 2d for making it inside family.
    3- i pressed edit family from ready windows in revit for purpose of taking the mullions of it --saving time--
    4- i pasted the 2d and it takes that direction, now i want to rotate it.
    5- i select all the pasted 2d and pressed editing workplane on the tab but i did not find any name for forntal neither able to pick the frontal workplane.

    Now what shall i do? to make this job done correctly.
    Thanks for your help,

    In your thumbnail, next to Show Workplane, there's a button named "Set Workplane". This will open up a screen which has for different possibilities for selecting a workplane. Best is to select a (named) ref plane to host it on. Other option is to use "Pick a Plane", place your cursor over the Wall Edge and hit tab till it highlights.

        You don't need to rename the workplane. You need to rehost the dwg. Select the dwg, it will show the "Set Workplane" button. Click it and proceed as above...

          when i select the drawing the normal that modify tab appearing -- the option of pick new host is not activated only (edit work plane) which limit me on one direction and hence can not rotate the drawing.

            Select the second option. You might need to draw (and name) a refplane first in the direction you want it.
            The reason it's only showing them in one direction is that this option assumes you want to keep it in this direction.

              i made my own refrence plan :then named it and make direction is front but when i test it before assignining it to 2d, it is on the direction of drawing.
              it is not showing the workplane on front.
              when i select edit workplane = the only names appearing thos is on the direction of drawing itself hence you can not rotate it just moving, what shall i do ?

                Use PICK A PLANE from this dialog box, and then pick the face of the wall. You don't need to use a named Ref Plane, or make a new Ref Plane. Just pick the face of the wall.

                  that is what i am saying when i want to orient it to plane by selection ,it's not highlighting it so i can not pick it, here is my problem.

                    sometimes the "pick" needs to be at or near the edge of the wall. You may have to use TAB key to get to the right face.
