When rotating view, nudge and align don't work as expected.

Nudge and align do not take view rotation into account. It's been this way since the feature was introduced. 

 

Dear Illustrator development team: try working on something like a box package that has flaps in different orientations. Pick one that's not right side up. Rotate your view. Now, nudge an element. Does that seems like the expectd bevaiour?

 

I do a lot of packaging design. I shouldn't have to turn upside down or do any mental calclations when simply trying to arrange objects on a part of the design that's not facing right way up.

 

Me, my keyboard, the UI, have all stayed in the same orientation. Nudging and alignment should reflect this.

A rotated view/display does not equal rotated content so operations honoring the actual orientation of the content seems reasonable to me. 

So something like this should, if implemented, be optional in my opinion.
