Any way to replicate "Ctrl + 8" from SolidWorks?

I have already replicated mapkeys for "Ctrl + 1" to 7. This is located in my config.pro. Very handy and quicker way than having to click the little button on top (view manager), scrolling, then clicking on the good view.

Code:
mapkey 1 @MAPKEY_LABELFront_View;~ Command `ProCmdViewNamePick` 1 ;\
mapkey(continued) ~ Select `nameviewlist` `nv_list`1  `FRONT`;
mapkey 2 @MAPKEY_LABELBack_View;~ Command `ProCmdViewNamePick` 1 ;\
mapkey(continued) ~ Select `nameviewlist` `nv_list`1  `BACK`;
mapkey 3 @MAPKEY_LABELRight_View;~ Command `ProCmdViewNamePick` 1 ;\
mapkey(continued) ~ Select `nameviewlist` `nv_list`1  `RIGHT`;
mapkey 4 @MAPKEY_LABELLeft_View;~ Command `ProCmdViewNamePick` 1 ;\
mapkey(continued) ~ Select `nameviewlist` `nv_list`1  `LEFT`;
mapkey 5 @MAPKEY_LABELTop_View;~ Command `ProCmdViewNamePick` 1 ;\
mapkey(continued) ~ Select `nameviewlist` `nv_list`1  `TOP`;
mapkey 6 @MAPKEY_LABELBottom_View;~ Command `ProCmdViewNamePick` 1 ;\
mapkey(continued) ~ Select `nameviewlist` `nv_list`1  `BOTTOM`;
mapkey 7 @MAPKEY_LABELDefault_View;~ Command `ProCmdViewNamePick` 1 ;\
mapkey(continued) ~ Select `nameviewlist` `nv_list`1  `Default`;
Problem is, I am still missing this last one (Ctrl + 8). Is there any way to do it in Pro/E?

I am asking this because often, while sketching on an angled plane, I hit my middle mouse button by mistake and I loose the proper angle. I have yet to find a way to recover my normal view to this sketch...

For people who havn't used SolidWorks, "Ctrl + 8" resets your view normal to your sketch plane.

Thanks

What version of Creo are you using?

In Sketch mode, there is an icon in the In Graphics Toolbar for Sketch View, which does this. You can create a Mapkey to click this icon.
