Bentley View CONNECT Edition Help

Saved Views Dialog

Used to apply saved views and view properties of saved views.

You can access this dialog from the following:

  • Ribbon: View > Home > Primary > More split button
  • Toolbox: Primary Tools
  • Toolbox: Saved View
  • View Window control menu: View Save/Recall
  • Default Function key menu: <F6> or <Ctrl+F5>

You can dock the Saved Views dialog to the top or bottom edge of the application window.

The Saved Views dialog contains controls that are used to apply a saved view to a view in the design. The list box shows the name and description of each view saved in the active design file. To apply a view, you must first select it or double-click the entry in the list.

Note: The saved views in DGN libraries that were created in editions prior to Bentley View do not appear in the Saved Views dialog. A message appears in the status bar saying that the saved views from the DGN libraries should be updated. To view these saved views, open the DGN library in Bentley View (SELECTseries 1) or later editions and update the saved views.
Apply Saved View

The effect is the same as clicking the Apply Saved View tool in the Saved Views ribbon group in the View tab.
