Set TOP view without changing viewport scale

We have a number of drawings, where the views in paperspace viewports are not orthogonal to the XY plane.

 

Is there any way that we can adjust the viewport view to a TOP view (a view aligned to the XY plane) without changing the viewport scale?

 

If I activate the viewport and use either PLAN or View->TOP my viewport scale is destroyed, and the view is rotated along the Z-axis.

You can try EXPLAN - see:

but there is no unambiguous way to map 3D view scale to plan view scale.

Thanks. It seems to work fine.

 

Unfortunately, the UCS is also rotated around both X and Y axis, so now we need to adjust the UCS as well... :smileyfrustrated:
