Rotated plan, but not axes?

Question

Hey folks - I've got a zig-zag shaped lot. Using rotated plan for one side of it to keep things orthogonal on screen. However, when I use the Rotated Plan view, the coordinate system / axes dont rotate, making things very difficult. How do I rotate those to match view or view grid?

Double click on the Angle Snap and turn on the Plan Rotation option. The grid and axes won't rotate, but you will snap at the correct angles.

Pat, thanks for that. I did have that option on. Digging in a bit more, the issue is more related to things drawn on one Plan Rotation, then trying to adjust them on the other. Move Edges Parallel adjustment does not snap parallel if I rotate an object to the new grid! It still snaps parallel to the grid it was drawn on, not actually the edge selected. See my image above again - the edge will move parallel, but the dimensioning/offset will be wrong. Its not actually moving that edge 3' parallel, but 3' on the wrong grid.
