Rotating a section view

Hello I have a problem with a current drafting I am working on. The part I am drawing is a square mount with some holes in it ( you can look at the professionally made drawing that is maid in paint that I attached because I am currently not at my work and therefore I don't have access to nx right now). The problem I have is that when I create a section view of the 2 holes to make them visible. But since the holes are on an angle on the workpiece I can't get the view to line up or fit in the current draft. Is there anyway to get the same sectionview and rotate it 30 degrees so it will be parallel and I then can place it where I would want it to be ?

(The sectionview is needed because the holes are complicated)

Would a stepped section view work?

A stepped section view is a good idea, but if you don't want to use that...

 

Create the section view and place it somewhere; right click the section view, choose view alignment and delete the exisiting alignment. Now you can place the view anywhere you like. In the section view settings (right click section view -> settings -> common -> angle) you can change the angle of the view.

Hi @bronson,

 

Is this what you're looking for?  I also added @Ken_A suggestion afterwards of creating a stepped section view.

Edit: Basically what @cowski1 suggests Smiley Happy
