Recently Jay over at "The Gear Box" posted about the new Home View option when right clicking or selecting the home button on the View Cube tool. This made me think about one of my favorite new things in Inventor 2009 along the same lines.
One of my pet peeves in the past has been trying to place a front or top view in a drawing without having to rotate or try different views. This is because the front view in the drawing isn't the same as my intended front view of my part or assembly. If I wasn't careful when I started creating my part, the drawing views never matched up with my model views so I couldn't select front view and actually get a front view in my drawing. Now with the View Cube you can specify your Front view in your model and have the drawing use the same views.
To do this open your drawing template and select the Format pull-down and select "Style and Standard Editor..." to launch your styles. Select the standard you are using and then select the "View Preferences" tab. You will notice there is a drop-down for "Front View Plane" that you can select the "From Model".
Thats it! Now whenever you create a drawing and specify Front View you will actually get the Front View from your model.
