Can you force a viewport to always use a camera?

I am having some trouble with multiple viewports reverting back to model view instead of staying in camera view while editing sketches. In my model I have a 3d sketch that defines the position of multiple cameras. I often need to change the sketch to reposition the cameras depending of the subject size. When I do this any viewport that is using a camera reverts back to model view and I have to select the orientation in each viewport after each sketch edit. This looks like a limitation/feature of solidworks, but I thought I would ask to see if there is a workaround before I go write a macro to fix it. Attached is a simple part that displays the same problem. Thank you!

you can still activate the camera views while in sketch mode though, so it is not impossible. If i rotate the model the iso1 viewport on the top right reverts back to model view.
