rotate a design layer


Hello all. I'm using Vectorworks as a 2d tool for now (transferring from autocad lt / sketchup to vectorworks architect - but not had the BIM training just yet) which I know its not particularly set up for. However, I need to draft a 2d cross section and wondered if there was a way of rotating a design layer in isolation. ie rotating a 'section' design layer over the floor plan design layers so I can produce a first angle projection of the section. In autocad, I'd use UCS tools but obviously the design layer (model space?) doesnt quite work the same. (I've found the 'rotate plan' tool, but it seems to rotate all of the design layers, when I need just the section design layer rotating........)

Create a Design Layer Viewport of the layer you want on the layer you want it on.  You can then crop it, rotate it and change its visibilities as needed.  When you no longer need it delete it.
