    Viewport - Not able to crop annotation

    I am not able to crop annotation box (Yellow) to suit the crop of my view (Red).

    This results in a poor view which includes unwanted items , surely there is a way to crop the annotation to suit the rotation of the building?

    Rotating the viewport 25degrees to portrait does work, however it's out of the question that we rotate to suit, we need the true angle of the building (25degrees).

    Any help would be great.

    Create a scope box, name it. Rotate it 25 degrees. Then associate your view to that scope box name (in the view's properties palette)

    The scope box has cleaned all the grid lines and annotation up perfectly!!

    Problem is - After rotating the scope box 25degrees to match the building and then applying to the view, it goes back to a 90degree angle. And I cannot then rotate the viewport.

    This is frustrating because it's cleaned all the stuff I didn't need, then reverted back to the 90degree angle. Any ideas (any ideas from the pics below)

    This is a limitation in Revit which gets even more annoying if you ever go down the by linked view route. Follow the link Dave posted and make some noise
