Lumion 5 Rotating cars on slopes

Hi there. I am wondering how can one rotate cars on the slope in Lumion 5. There were 2 extra buttons for that in previous versions but not in 5. I am working on a big parking house and bought Lumion especially for this project but so far I cannot really use it...Am I missing something? thanks for help.

Hi Caroo, choose the Rotate heading tool, then select the model by CTRL-clicking on the circular object icon, and move the mouse cursor up to the right corner of the screen to either drag one of the 3 sliders or double-click on a slider to type in an angle.

The same method applies to the position type-in.

If you want to align a model with the angle of the slope, just hold down the F key while moving it.

Excerpt from the Keyboard Shortcuts FAQ post:
(F): The orientation of all objects (apart from Trees/plants) can be made to adapt to the surface angles of other objects. Move object button -> Press (F) for "Flatten" -> Move the object(s) to make them adapt to the surface angles of other objects. This function only works on surfaces that are facing the sky, i.e. less than 90 degree angles.

P.S. Don't forget to add your Lumion 5 license to your forum profile page. This gives you access to the full forum.

Oh thank you...It works. I would never find that option by myself.
