Rotating a plan view without affecting other views or the Project North

Sometimes, especially in case of detailed Floor Plans showing areas of special interest of larger spaces (like escape staircases or entrance lobbies), there is a need of orienting those detailed Floor Plans on sheets to a different direction than True North, Project North or the limited options available under the Rotation on Sheet instance property of Viewports (90° Clockwise or 90°
Counterclockwise) – shown on the image below.

Rotating the Crop Region is a view specific operation and the rotated Floor Plan can be placed on a Sheet just as any other View.
