I tried this from SolidWorks Help:
To select a view orientation with Normal To:
With this method, the first face you choose is parallel to the screen and the second face you choose is at the top of the view.
- Hold down Ctrl and select two planar faces. The second planar face cannot be parallel to the first.
- Click Normal To (View Orientation flyout – Heads-up View toolbar).
Its description is exactly what I want, but is does not work for me. When I click "Normal To", I get the view oriented with the second plane I picked normal to the screen. I have an assembly that sits on the table at an angle from the modeled horizontal and I need to show it sitting horizontal.
Am I doing something wrong? (yes) Is this a bug? (no) Should this cause me so much grief? (no) Got any tips for me? (please say yes...)
Thanks a lot...
