Set View Rotation

The Set View Rotation... option will bring up the Set View Rotation dialogue (below), allowing for free rotation of the map view. Enter the rotation in degrees, and the select the direction from the drop down menu (Clockwise or CounterClockwise).

The value will default to the current rotation. Once the user enters an angle and clicks OK, the view will rotate so that the specified angle is pointing to the top of the screen. The effect is that the screen image gets rotated clockwise or counterclockwise by the specified angle.

The view orientation will be stored in the workspace file. Rotate View Clockwise and Rotate View Counterclockwise are also accessible as a Shortcut Key through the Favorites menu.
