Rotate Views in Layout Viewports

You can rotate an entire view within a layout viewport by changing the UCS and using the PLAN command.

With the UCS command, you can rotate the XY plane at any angle around the Z axis. When you enter the PLAN command, the view rotates to match the orientation of the XY plane.

For a faster method, use the Align and then Rotate View options in the MVSETUP command.

NoteThe ROTATE command rotates individual objects only and should not be used to try to rotate a view.
