New interactive model view rotation

The symbol for local coordinate system in the model view has been replaced with a new, interactive view rotation symbol, and thus making it easier to quickly rotate the model from 3D view to a desired 2D plane. The new view rotation symbol is similar to the one in Trimble Connect.

The new view rotation symbol is at the lower right corner of the model view:

You can now easily rotate the model view from 3D to a new 2D plane by clicking the navigation control axes in the symbol. Previously, you had to create the default views of a part or use the View angle commands on the contextual toolbar for a desired view.

When you click the navigation control axes in the symbol, the model view rotates around the current rotation point and the level of the zoom stays the same. Also the movement to the selected position is animated when the rotation is changed. To return to the 3D view, rotate the model using your mouse.

If you rotate the view for example using the Rotate with mouse command, the new navigation control symbol shows the rotation respectively.
