Altium Designer Documentation

New View Configuration Wizard

Modified by Susan Riege on Jul 7, 2017
This documentation page references Altium Vault, which is no longer a supported product. Altium Vault and its component management features have migrated to Altium Concord Pro.


The first page of the New View Configuration Wizard allows designers to choose the configuration kind.

Summary

A View Configuration is simply a snapshot of configured display settings, which you can configure, save and load as required. The New View Configurations Wizard  guides designers through the process of creating a new 2D or 3D view configuration, complete with name, description, and a location to store the configuration file. Once finished, the new view configuration is added to the list of available view configurations.

When the new View Configuration has been created, ensure it is highlighted in the top-right of the View Configurations dialog. Make any desired changes and then click the Save View Configuration link in the Actions region (bottom-left) of the dialog to save the selected settings to the View Configuration.
