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.
