Love the feature that you finally can rotate the view in Illustrator. However – after rotating the view, for example 90 degrees, the arrow keys are not adjusted to fit this particular view. When I hit the up arrow key, things move to the right instead and so on. Same with ruler guides, try to make a horizontal guide and it makes a vertical one. Why isn't it like in Indesign where when you for example move something to the left, you hit the left arrow key, regardless of what angle you are viewing? Or am I missing something here?
