Benefits and Description

The options for flat-to-screen orientation are Screen Location and Geometry Location. Screen location is independent of geometry, where the text height for annotations is controled in screen units. Annotations placed with a Geometry Location move with the model, yet remain flat to screen and can be set to either screen or model units.

These options are set within the Annotation Orientation user interface.
