Summary0002123: drawing workbench - enable rotation by 3 axis
DescriptionI have a project where one part is rotated to the rest by 60°. I needed a projection on the drawing sheet, rotated by 60°, but not in the axis upright to the sheet, but parallel to the sheet.

One could do that by the "shape view" - direction feature, but that's extremely unhandy, allthough I struggled for several hour, I never understood how it works.

An enhancement, which includes 3 controls of rotation, one for each axis, would solve this issue elegantly.

@wandererfan is this feature available in TechDraw? If not then, in your opinion, what should be done with this ticket in leu of Drawing being deprecated ?

Unless I misunderstand, I think so. Between ProjectionDirection and Rotation properties, you can show a View of any side in any orientation. Fancy spin/rotation control panel for ProjectionGroup only, not regular View though.

I'd say this is a "Won't fix".
