Rotating Views/Layouts

I'm after a little help regarding DView commands. We're using layout drawings of sites that are aligned with True North.


We've been using DView to rotate site layouts within model space in order to to align the layout better within the window and set up icons as such. And we have multiple Sheets set up with different information being displayed (ie different layers turned off). But when we go to the sheets, the Paper Space view still shows it's Original Orientation.


What I'd like to know is there a simple way to set the various different layouts to the same as Model Space, Without having to manually DView each Viewport as well?

The quick and dirty way would be to save a VIEW in modelspace of the desired orientation, and then within the Viewport you can restore that view. You will most likely have to PAN around and ZOOM to get the desired posiiton and scale factor, but it will still be a quicker "jumping to" point
