ArcGIS : A simple one: Georeferencing Toolbar options greyed out….

Argh…. this is a very simple one to fix but it had me scratching my head for a while, I use mapbook so some of my maps are being rotated to follow a river feature.  When I switch to data view my problems begin as I’m trying to fit some PNGs over the top…. and I need georeferencing to work!

The solution is to right-click and properties the data frame and change the rotation to 0, that’s it and you can go back to using the georeferencing tools….. I feel so stupid, thank you help forums for making me feel not so alone!
