I find it kind of cumbersome to edit an object that has been rotated. I know I can set the navigation to „local“ to make things easier, but then I still cannot use numpad 1, 3, 7, etc. to easily jump between the views. Is there a way to use these shortcuts on a rotated object or is there an alternative?

In the default keymap it’s Shift + Numpad.

To align a view to an object’s local axis without Shift, tick the 'Align Active' option in PreferencesKeymap3D ViewView Axis

  • $\begingroup$ Shift + numpad doesn't seem to work in Edit mode though, from what I undertand he's asking for Edit mode $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Here it also works in edit mode (Windows 10, 2.93.5). The alignment is done to the active geomtry. $\endgroup$
