<p>You really should try using the editor. It makes world of difference! And theres even tutorials online you can watch that shows the basics. Here...</p><p><a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bb-VQEQPWH0&list=UUf5a2-uS1XQ7Zu2U7tfUfrg&index=4&feature=plcp" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bb-V...mp;feature=plcp</a></p><p>It's really not hard to use. As for how to manually edit the file yourself,  theres a string of numbers that represent the rotation/pitch/roll of the item. Just change the appropriate number to 90 or -90 depending on orientation and that will lay it flat.</p><p>But seriously... use the editor. lol  <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>

<p>I would recommend using the layout editor too. Not only it is easier to see the different columns but it also has some tools to make a decorator's life easier.</p><p>In any case, the number you are looking is the 7th if you are using notepad. Change it to 89.98 or 90.04 to pich the tapestry of the steam lord. A warning though: Never use a whole angle like 90 or 180 for pitching an item. There is a bug in Everquest 2 that will make the item spin like crazy if you use an angle like that. Broken angles like I suggested should be fine though.</p>

<p>You can edit the layout files with any program that can open a text file. What Jesdyr's Layout Editor provides is just a more convenient interface to do that plus some very useful tools to make some very difficulty stuff much easier.</p>
