Protractor tool

Is there a way to flip the protractor tool into another plane with a key board short cut without having to orbit the diagram around? For example, the protractor is blue when selected, but what I really want is the red or green orientation. I seem to get the protractor tool stuck in a particular plane and cannot get it into the orientation I want, even after much orbiting around (which I tend to get lost in after a while and I am not certain what orientation I am in anymore). Thanks for your help.


You can use the arrow keys, blue is up, red is right and green is left

Great, thanks for that!

It helps to work with a style that includes a horizon to keep yourself oriented.
