Problem: Cartographic representations do not display correctly when applying a field based rotation

Description

Cartographic representations do not display correctly when applying a field based rotation.

Cause

Representations rotate with the graphic method (counter-clockwise with 0 at due north) while standard symbology rotates with either the geographic (clockwise with 0 at due north) method or arithmetic (counter-clockwise with 0 at due east) method.

Solution or Workaround

Change the values in the field with angles to be negative values or add 180° to each value.

  • Open the attribute table, right-click on the rotation field, and select Field Calculator. Set type as Number and use the following calculation (where <Field> is the rotation field name):

    -[<Field>]

  • Open the attribute table, right-click on the rotation field, and select Field Calculator. Set type as String and use the following calculation (where <Field> is the rotation field name):

    [<Field>] + 180
