REVIT 2010 - Orient View

In REVIT 2010 you will notice the 'orient view' tools are gone. Yes, gone from the pulldown menu and gone from the help menu too. That worried me. I searched for the word 'orient' everywhere and NOTHING. Vanished.
I used to use these tools to orient a 3D view to an elevation or plan type viewpoint (Shaded glass looks better in a flat 3d view than a true elevation view).
I just came across the new 2010 solution. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . drum roll please. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . it's gone.
No just kidding. . . .. now you use the 'View Cube' to orient a 3d view !
Makes sense but just proves another 'clickflow' change that we are going to have to get user to.

They aren't gone....Right Click on the View Cube to get the "Orient to" tools.

I thought they introduced the orient view tool via the view cube in the 2009 version?

Thanks, I was so used to the old pull down menu access. I must start using the view cube more. It also appears the help menu does have info. as well.
