When working in top view I would prefer the view to be 180 degrees rotated along the Y axis like in the image. I can rotate the view when in top view by pressing numpad+6 a bunch of times, but it's a bit tedious to do every time. Is there a faster way than that to do what I want?

There's a related question Can the 'top' view be rotated by 180° around the Z-axis by default?, which asks if the top view can be changed by default, which it evidently can't, by what I'm wondering is if there's at least a quicker way to get to that desired view?

You can use ShiftNumpad 7 then Numpad 9.

After that Numpad 9 will invert the view.

Globally: Numpad 9 goes to the opposite view. But for top and bottom view using Shift set it to rotate 180 degrees.

  • $\begingroup$ So the sole difference between toggling top and bottom view with and without Shift, is that it in former case it allows you to rotate 180 degrees with Numpad 9, right? $\endgroup$ – Lenny White Mar 18 at 15:05

    $\begingroup$ Yes with shift rotate 180 or if not shift opposite view. $\endgroup$ – lemon Mar 18 at 15:11
