My socket labels look strange what’s happening?

The text labels on sockets are wrongly drawn. What’s the problem? Quite simply Vectorworks doesn’t draw this text perfectly in 3D views and somehow you have got into Top view when you should be in Top/Plan view. Here’s how to make it all right.

Changing to Top/Plan view


Use this dropdown at the top of the document to change the view to Top/Plan. As you see the labels are drawn perfectly now.
