# Can the 'top' view be rotated by 180° around the Z-axis by default?

Is it somehow possible to have the top view (Numpad 7) rotated by 180 degrees by default?

I can get the view I'm after using the key combination Numpad 7 then 12 x Numpad 6 (or 12 x Numpad 4).

I was hoping that there is some option or setting to rotate this default top-view orientation by 180° around the Z-axis?

• If I understand correctly, you want to look at the x-y plane, such that +x is pointing left and +y is down? – Ron Proctor May 21 '17 at 14:58
• @RonProctor, Yes. I would like to have hitting Numpad 7 result in a top-down view, with positive x pointing left and positive y pointing down. – Jacco May 21 '17 at 15:24
