This is a file I didn't start, so I don't know the history of this section. But I don't think I ever saw this and I can't understand how it happened. It is a view that takes me to section viewpoint —it is not a worksheet which is what I first thought.
The file has rotated plan views, and may have once had rotated drawings, and I was thinking that maybe redirecting a drawing, or transferring settings, resulted in this. But I get the same thing on the viewpoint, and as a way out I can only think of creating a new section.

Edit: I created a new section, view and drawing, starting off settings in marker and views of a section that is doing fine, and I get the same thing. All the other sections and elevations are doing fine.

Edit 2: I unrotated the plan view back to 0, created the section marker with that view active, opened with current settings and it looked fine, opened another section view which was fine, in Organizer dragged the new section viewpoint to the View Map and the new View still appears rotated.

Edit 3: it is happening with whatever settings I create the view —dragged in Organizer with elevation views active, with schedule views active.

Edit 4: at some point a few days ago I copypasted a section marker from some other file, in order to extract-inject its settings. It is likely that I copied it from an unrotated plan view and pasted it into a rotated plan view.

Edit 5: I unrotated the plan view, copypasted a section marker from the other file, extracted settings from it, created a new section marker, opened viewpoint and created views and drawings with no problem. So there is something that had got messed up with that straight-to-rotated section marker copypaste.

Hi Ignacio,

Thank you for your question and I am very sorry about the issue!

From your description and screenshot, I believe this is similar to a known defect in ARCHICAD 23 build 3003. As of now, we haven't released a fix to stop it from happening, but the rotated section can be repaired by using Open & Repair function with build 4006. This will reset the corrupted section to correct orientation.

Thank you for your understanding! Let me know if this helps!

Best regards,
Minh.

I tried Open & Repair, I am on 4006. This was a bimserver file, so it involved saving as pln, O&R, reuploading to bimserver. After a few days I got auto-rebuild elevations converted to independent drawings (viewtopic.php?f=20&t=42172), and after finding no solution for that, I deleted elevation markers and created new ones, which again appear rotated.

I saved that to pln, open-and-repaired, and that is not doing the job either.

This is a significant disaster.

Edit:
After several trials and errors I fixed a rotated elevation view by
- activating the plan viewpoint,
- rotating the plan viewpoint to 0,
- without opening the view, clicking on the view name on the navigator and “replace with current settings”.
That unrotated the elevation view.

That happened with a customer here before. The exact same issue, and looks like it passes the rotation value from a planview to the section, even though the section doens't have this option. I believe this was reported at that time, but i couldn't find the original e-mail.
