"Look At" Orientation

Anyone know how to change the orientation of the part orientation always
created with the "Look at" button. At .Is the orientation completely
dependent on how you built the part relative to it's origin planes? As most
of you know, you end up looking at your part/asy sideways sometimes after
using Look At.

What I am looking for is a way to have the something like the precise view
functioanlity when in the model mode so I can set up the part oreintation
properly for when I need to create documentation views of it. Sideways
doesn't always fit the sheet the best.

Sorry, I'm full of questions today...

Duh, it's the rotate/spacebar thingamajigger (AKA "3D View Direction
Selector"). And I found how to change rotation of your IDW views while in
pursuit of that.

Good job Autodesk IV team!
