    Grid Head Behavior

    Hi,

    I would like to have a grid head with a secondary information (kinda about phasing) but once the grid is rotated, the text won't stay on top of the grid head (like my red text in attachment).

    How could I fix it?

    Thank You

      Maybe a horiz grid type.. and a vert grid type??? its not very pretty but it would give you graphicaly what you want and only requires 2 families.

        I would consider making a compromise to your standard. It is very difficult to work with a setting like this in your grid heads. You can add shared parameters to the grid head family to have custom labels, but the position of the label in the grid will be tough to control.

          No compromise needed. Instead of having two separate labels, add both parameters to the same label. Make sure you check the Break box. It does required using shared parameters of course, so you'll have to set that up on your end.

          They will both be the same text size, so, maybe small compromise needed.

            is it going to read live Phase info? seems i cannot make it happen, did i miss something here?

              In fact, I mentioned that the additional info was "kinda about phasing" because we're separating buildings with letters. I add the shared parameter to grid and it allows me to create several grid head types because sometimes I have to indicates other grids for connection between each buildings. The parameters is not directly related to the phasing you may already know (manage-phases).

              The need4mospd's solution works great but I'll stick with mine since I only have horizontal and vertical grids.

              Thanks Guys
