    moving or rotating to a specific point in the drawing

    I am trying to rotate an arch in a very large drawing (100') I zoom in to pick my reference point, but then I can not zoom in to the other end of the arch to rotate to a precise point. Is there a way to pick my reference point, then specify a point in the drawing to which I want the item to rotate to?

    Why, what did happen instead?

    Try the _regen" command.

    once I pick my reference point for the rotate command, I can either put in a number for degrees of rotation, or I can just manually pick a point using my mouse. The problem is, once the reference point is picked, I am zoomed in really tight, and the other end of the arch is not in my screen. If I zoom out then zoom in to the other end of the arch, i no longer have control over my mouse, because it is attached to the reference point which is at the other end of the arch.

    If you use a precise angle there is no need to see what the other end of the arch is doing.

    Try using Aerial View for zooming into different parts of your drawing while in the middle of a command.
