I had mentioned that one of the topics you NEVER want to bring up at AU social events Â is UCS vs Dview twist for viewport alignment… BUT this year….. This year we might have made some progress.
As you know, James and Jason are UCS followers, and I am a Dview Twister.
We’ve had a few discussions on this topic over the past few months:
The major objection to dview that I hear from James, Jason and the other UCS folks in this world is that unlessÂ you use Named Views andÂ the Layout Express Tools, it is difficult to get the dview twist right- you wind up typing in a lot of angles and having a lot of trial and error.
This year at AU, I saw both Lucy Kuhns and Anthony G. use this method to make a dview twist- and I dare say it is easy as pie.

Find a road you’d like to see differently…
PressÂ the 3D Free Orbit button, and keep your mouse OUTSIDE of the green circle until your mouse pointer looks like the image below.
As long as you stay outside of the green circle, you are strictly rotating the view ABOUT the Z axis.Â There is no 3D element to the rotation when you stay OUTSIDE of the green circle.
And your view rotates…. and your labels flip as specified in your styles.Â
