Hi Michael,
Yes, that's the way to do it: "align" and then rotate 90 degrees.

(Is there an align command that works along the x axis rather than the line of sight?) To take care of that I choose two "atoms" along an orthogonal axis, align those, and then if necessary 'turn y 90'. It's not automatic but seems to be precise.
