I frequently manage to get my perspective viewport in Modeler into a condition I assume is "gimbal lock", where I can only rotate in two axes (presumably because one axis now overlays another)

What's the solution to "reset" the perspective viewport?

try holding the 'alt' key and then L click in the viewport and move it around...

That is the best way to rotate in modeler, you can also alternate shift and cntrl while still holding alt with your thumb, to pan and zoom.

But if you simply want to reset, go to an empty layer and press 'a' for fit all.
