Gave it multiple tries, but have have failed miserably trying to rotate a user workplane. As usual the user manual is useless, so maybe someone knows the secret. I've repositioned the origin to the (x,y,z) location I want but now I want to align one of the workplane axes with the red (highlighted) line by rotating it around the x axis. Any help would be appreciated.

Im working in OSX SharkCAD Pro V11.

did you already try the "C-key"?

manual says: "move your cursor over a curve until LogiCursor indicates you are on, and then press the ā€œCā€ key"

press the C key repeatedly

maybe "show grid" can help to find the right orientation

Draw a rectangle by three points, base along the red line, arbitrary height. Workplane by three points, the base and top LH corner of the rectangle.
