    Help with Plane Orientation and possible "orientation and plane adjustment bug"?

    Alex Gardner

      Here are a couple of problems I am having. Wonder if anyone knows how to fix this. Just upgraded to 2014 version. This new version seems to have some part orientation problems.  Now, when I make a plane, it rotates the "normal" orientation of the plane 90 degrees to the principal planes. Here is a picture of what I mean:

       

      So now, if I go to make a sketch in Plane 2, and if I select "Normal To"  it rotates the model 90 degrees, and messes up all of the relations. Does anyone know how to get all the planes to have the same orientation? This second picture shows what I want. This was done in SW 2013 (which I have not had this problem with):

       

      Also, I noticed that the arrow for plane adjustment are oriented in the wrong direction, as shown (Note these are not the actual arrows, I couldn't get the actual ones to show up in a screen shot. They just point 90 degrees in the wrong direction):

      \

       

      It also rotated the normal for one of my planes 180 degrees when the part shown in the second picture ( which was created in SW 2013) was edited using the 2014 version. I think this is a bug. Any help would be appreciated.
