Ability to Rotate View in 2D Mode
I'd love to be able to rotate my view when working in 2D mode. Currently I am working on a very large club layout and a portion of it runs at a 36° angle to most of the layout. While working on this section, I'd like to be able to rotate my view to make this easier. I do not want to rotate all tracks or the canvas as everything is precisely positioned, what I really need is to just change the angle at which I am viewing it.
Not currently planned.
I'm afraid that's out of the question as it would have ripple effects throughout the entire app and would require a massive rewrite, essentially of almost every component.
However, feel free to send the layout in question to firstname.lastname@example.org for consideration of the use case

No, not quite... I don't want to rotate anything but the view/canvas to any arbitrary angle. The idea is that the actual document wouldn't experience any kind of change - elements at a given coordinates would stay at those coordinates, but the UI would be rotated on screen to give the user the ability to work on it from various angles.
Here's an example of something challenging that this would address. I'm working on a city scene. Part of the downtown area is at a 36° angle to the X axis. The other part of downtown is at a 10° angle to the X axis. We have a street car line that needs to align precisely with that street grid, which is challenging currently
So just to clarify -
The idea is to simultaneously change the angle of everything - tracks, elements, baseboards and images - by 90 degrees (left or right) and keep all relative positions?
Effectively swapping the X and Y axis?
