Default "proper" back view

Hay guys,

so I'm starting to model a Torso but
the standart viewa are front, side and top

since i dont need the top, how do i ceate a proper back view

i don't want to just drag it to the back view because in the lower part of the viewport you can still read "top"
but wanna read back...


looked through the panel options and there where only front side and top available

could someone help me?

you could make a new camera and then use the view cube thing to position it in the axis you want. You could even lock the rotate attributes.
