I've tried to search this problem of mine, but I couldn't find exactly what I wanted (at least the full solution), so here it goes:
The standard SW template defines the Y direction as the vertical one. I'm am designing a car and want the Z to be the vertical direction, the X the longitudinal and the Y the lateral.
I learned that I can "Set current view as..." and change which one is the front view. After that, to match everything I can also change the Base planes names. (How to Change Orientation of an Existing SOLIDWORKS Part - Computer Aided Technology )
But the last thing, the one that bothers me, is that when I start a sketch on let's say, the (new) Front plane (x = 0) , SW just rolls the view. I recorded my screen and attached it here so you can better understand. How can I make that when I start that sketch on the Front plane the view doesn't get rolled with the Z direction ending up to the left?
