A map in ArcGIS Pro displays a collection of layers drawn in a particular order for a given geographic extent and projection. The map can be rotated to a specific angle to provide the proper perspective. In ArcGIS Pro, maps can be rotated in both the map view and layout view, and this article provides a few methods.
This option is applicable to both the map view and layout view.
ArcGIS Pro 2.0 and later provides an on-screen navigator for quick access to controls that help refine the perspective and scale when moving through maps and scenes. In map view, use the Full Control mode of the navigator options to rotate the map. Refer to ArcGIS Pro: Use the on-screen navigator for more information.
Note: There are keyboard shortcuts to rotate the map. Click the map, hold the left button on the mouse, and press 'A' to rotate counter clockwise or 'D' to rotate clockwise. Refer to ArcGIS Pro: Keyboard shortcuts for navigation for more information.
This option rotates only the map frame in the layout view, and not the map referenced by the map frame. To rotate the referenced map, follow the first method provided above.
Note: In the layout view, the map frame can be rotated manually by moving the rotation handle at the corner of the map frame.
