Leave everything else the same, but set Viewing Angle to 80 deg.

We are all "noobs" with perspective drawing at this point.
If I understand correctly what you are trying to do, you can go under the View menu and choose "Lock Station Point." Then with the Perspective Grid tool selected, drag the top vanishing point to the right. Your grid will appear to rotate around the ruler origin at the center.
Thanks both for your answers. The 80 degree answer did the trick. The rotating on axis after locking the station point did flip the orientation, but I couldn't seem to maintain the same angles when inverted. Must have been doing something wrong -
For some reason, I thought the viewing angle corresponded to the "top down" viewing angle (like - if I was above the object looking down, what my angle from the surface would be).
I have to say it's a pretty handy tool for someone who has to draw a bunch of box-like equipment!
Thanks again to you both,
