At some point x and y seems to have gotten flipped in my ViaCAD 2D drawing. The axis symbol shows correctly with y up and x horizontal. However, I have to enter text at an angle of 270 for it to be horizontal. All the text on my dimensions are rotated. And most telling, when I "nudge" objects I have to hit the UP arrow to move it right, down arrow to move left, left arrow to move down and right arrow to move up. Also, when I import graphics they come in flipped and I have to rotate them

What happened and how do I fix it?

Thank you.

I always wondered what the Default and Aerospace options were in preferences. I mentioned it on here a while back and someone said it's to do with the Z axis
Where you enter the nudge distance, the Default is Y up, and Aerospace is Z up. Maybe this has switched you x and y?

Thanks for your reply. I am using ViaCAD 2D, so I don't have the Aerospace option and there shouldn't be any Z axis possible -- unless something is wrong with the software.

I've just had this happen to me too. SharkCAD v12 in 2D mode. Most curious...
