Not any way that I can find. I know it is another change, but there are extra views available with the pinned orientation palette. I know we are all different, but I personally like seeing only the icons instead of words - it is probably better for international use too.
Hi Jeff, thanks for the reply. Unfortunately I use a multitude of 3D programs, none are similar whatsoever and all use variations of different icons. This one isn't too bad (although I really dislike it), but when you are bouncing around from several apps all with different icons, for me seeing the word is a lot easier/quicker than identifying the similar yet always different icon. The Orientation icons take me a few seconds to decipher where as no one confuses the word "Top" with anything else.
International shouldn't come into play, that is why they have different languages. I've been beta testing for a 3D compnay for over 15 years, and trust me, users ALWAYS want a way to reverse UI changes, doesn't always happen, but it is always desired in my experiences.
PS- It really is a horrible design change, it wastes a ton of space which is really frustrating the more I look at it.
