    Alternatively, you can use the SNAPSTYL command, changing the variable value to 1.
    As said, you can change your plane by typing ISOPLANE, but it can be done faster by pressing "F5" key.
    To came back to the default, use the SNAPSTYL command again and change the variable value to 0.

    In Autocad 2013 you can easily type "ISO+Enter" in the command line and the snap turn to Isometric, type "STD+Enter" and the snap go back to standard snap.
