UCS ICON

I am currently working on a culvert drawing, using two view ports for my plan and profile sheet. As you can see below in my attachment, the UCS icon in the upper viewport is distorted, I do not how this occured nor do I know how to correct it. Would appreciate some input. Thanks 

With no information other than the screen shot. I would guess that your Viewtwist is not 0°. Type VIEWTWIST to check. Use the DView command to reset.

 

It isn't a bad thing if it's not 0°. Mine often isn't. That's how I make a road that isn't east to west be parallel to the boarder.

UCS with the View option will rotate the UCS to your viewport.

Allen,

 

I've never Twisted a view, so I didn't know how to Un-Twist one. I just got a Hand-Me-Down drawing, molested by many hands, with a Twisted View. Thanks to you I know how to make it right.

 

Thanks yet again, Allen.

Dave,

 

My view is often twisted!

 

I know there are newer commands for aligning the view with the paper. But I've been doing it this way for so long I just naturally use it.
