Aligning a work plane with the front plane in part studio

How do I align a work plane with the front plane so when I do a drawing all my views are normal?

    I think you are asking how to set up a view in the drawing? If so, create a Named View in your model to represent the "front view" and use that named view in the drawing.

    That could work but is there a way to align the work plane to the front plane. I need my parts aligned with the front plane the same way my work plane is aligned.. I am guessing I shouls have sketched it that way bt making my polygon concident to this point.

    I got it. I just had to edit my sketch and add a constraint.
