Creating new objects question?

In the older versions on Blender 2.45 and below. When you added new objects they would face according to the point of view…Like when i add a plane, and i was in top view, the flat side would face me. Like wise if i was in front view. The flat side would face me.

Now… an object just faces one way…

i also used to be able to put the 3d point thingy where i wanted a camera, face towards my scene and place the camera, and the camera would be looking at the scene. Now if i add a new one, its just facing straight down…

Is there some option that needs to be checked or something because i really hate this…

user preferences / edit methods / Align to veiw

Thanks a lot! :slight_smile:
