How do I rotate my model space view?

There was a "rotate view" command in the old Eaglepoint software.  Does anyone know how to do that in Civil 3D?

Thank you

Shhhhhh....Keep it quiet, you start a firestorm :smileyhappy:


Its still Autocad and you have all the ways available to you. I use USC and PLAN. I set the UCS to define my xy set pan and Im done. Some prefer DVIEWTWIST. Explore them an choose the one best for you 

Thank you

You may want to check out Express tools for Align Space, if you are worknig in Paper Space too.  It willl save time if you have several view and don't want to use Sheet manager.

I'm a fan of DVIEW TWIST personally. The advantage of dview is when you are done, it is still zoomed into the area you were originally working on. UCS/PLAN ends with a zoom extents.


But as Joe said, try them both and see which works better for you.
