Q - question

How to rotate a view in paperspace (layout)?

A - answer Use the MVSETUP command and its options "Align viewports", "Rotate view".

As an alternative, you can use the DVIEW command with the "Twist" option. Or you can rotate an UCS about the Z axis (UCS) and - if you don't have the UCSFOLLOW variable set to 1 - set the PLAN view (top view).

You can also use the Express Tool ALIGNSPACE.

Since version 2010 you can use the VPROTATEASSOC variable to control the associative rotation of the contents of the viewport.
