Orientation (N, S, E, W)

This feature of Sort Mark lets you get the cardinal direction – north (N), south (S), east (E), west (W) – of elements of the selected category into an instance text parameter. The tool works with the Doors, Walls, and Windows categories.

Run the Auto-fill Orientation command, select the element category and the text parameter to write the orientation values to (or create a new shared parameter). OK to run the command.

In this example, I choose to create a new shared parameter Orientation. All the doors in the project now have the orientation values filled and it can be used in tags or schedules.
