Rotate Views in Layout Viewports

From the current R2011 help

 

Procedure

To rotate a view within a viewport
  1. At the Command prompt, enter vprotateassoc.
  2. Set the value to 1.
  3. Make sure you are on a layout tab.
  4. Select the viewport with the view you want to rotate.
  5. Enter r (Rotate) to rotate the view to a specified angle or with two points.
  6. Specify a base point for the rotation.
  7. Specify the rotation angle or specify a second point to determine the angle of rotation.

    The entire view rotates within the viewport.

Does this work for anyone? Everytime I type a R I get the REDRAW command. Is there a simple way to rotate a view inside a viewport? I have a site plan in model space a site view in one viewport in paperspace and I want another viewport with a specific building rotated to match the floor plans. Is that so hard?

Sort of answer. Use the MVSETUP command with the A (align) and then R (rotate view) options.

 

Funny thing is I tried this three times before posting. ALways got a unknown command error when typing everything out. But when I selected the options from the pop ups it worked. But it took a long time after entering the angle I wanted the view rotated.

I was does the Autodesk Spell Checker not recognize VIEWPORT?

"Enter r (Rotate) to rotate the view to a specified angle or with two points."

 

You might want to check the command alias. Rotate command on my system is RO.

 

I've always used MVSETUP in the past but I find this method quite simple.
