Reset front/ISO view in the model

Is there a way to reset the front and/or ISO view for the model? Inventor has this feature

    Model direction on screen should not matter, but you can use Named Views

    I have had a challenge with kids making good front views in their drawings and hoping to do this as well. 

    So here is how I have gotten around this for kids who are putting in poor front views into their drawing.
    On the part studio tab place the object in the front position facing you as desired.
    Below the navigation cube where is the dropdown for iso, dim,.... you can click on name view. Give this a title such as "True Front"
    Then when you go to place your view into a drawing KIds can select this view. It is below the insert view in the "View orientation" dropdown menu. 
    Hope this helps.

    @david_salonia try the <Shift><7> keyboard shortcut to quickly return to the isometric view.

    Mr. Cooke,  

    Model direction is a major issue and very important. There should not have to be get arounds, work arounds.  Inventor allows this and this is Very Important.  Onshape needs to add this programming feature asap!

    Onshape also need to mimic actual real materials selection like Inventor along with the master data base of fasteners like Inventor.  If OS is looking to be world class #1, then many, many pinnacle features from other systems need to be implemented!

    Can you please explain why it is a major issue? Onshape (or any other CAD for that matter) does not care. Even for 3D printing you can reorient the model in the slicer. Create or vote on an improvement request - if enough people vote then we may consider it, but it would be really low priority in the grand scheme of things.

    If you click the isometric view button to return to that default view, you can then use the transform tool to position the part as you like and it will take on those views.

    Named views are very useful and give you a great deal of versatility
