change joist direction

Recommended Posts

I am doing a remodel of an existing home whose existing floor joists run 90 degrees to what the software is automatically entering in.  In order to accurately reflect the existing structure, I need to change these in my plan.

 

I know I can use the "bearing line" tool (http://www.chiefarchitect.com/support/article/KB-02932/) to "change direction" of the joists, but is there a way to just change the entire floor?

Sorry, I just answered my own question.  It's easy enough to just create a single bearing line down the middle of my home, then on both sides of that line do the "joist direction" tool but just draw the lines in the same direction.
