alignment of dimensions on an auxilliary view



I have a projected auxilliary view that sits at an angle to the main view. When I 'show' the center marks for the holes they are aligned with the main view. I would like them to show up aligned with the aux. view. Can someone help? Thanks in advance!

What you need to do will seem unusual but it does work. The location of the menu picks will vary from version to version of Pro/E but the procedure will be the same. Start by picking mod attach, then select one of the axis lines. Another menu will come up with options; choose the parallel option and then choose an edge of the part to make that axis parallel too. The axis should rotate to where the chosen leg and the side of the part are parallel and the center mark will be in the proper orientation. This will need to be done for each center mark.
