I have a situation in a complex skeleton model where at the very least I would like to align the Vertical and Horizontal in a given sketch to be parallel with something else. I've tried creating a plane that is rotated to a suitable orientation, but have had no success.
Solidworks Help says "By default, the origin of a block is aligned to the orientation of the sketch entity. Use Align Grid/Origin to re-orient the coordinate system of a sketch or block if they are not in the desired orientation." However, when I try to execute the command, nothing I pick shows up in the property manager - whether internal or external. I found a workaround in the Knowledge Base (S-053893), but even it seems to no longer apply - creating a block still does not permit actually selecting anything.
My ProE-loving friends are all laughing right now. Does SW2012 have any way of overriding the sketch orientation?
