Named Presentation View Attribute
In the View Attributes dialog's Presentation section, a new icon called Named Presentation is added. If on, named presentations are applied to the selected view.
Elements in a design that are not added to any Named presentation will display in all Views. To prevent an element from displaying in any of the standard views you must add it to the Model named presentation. Elements added to the Model named presentation will only display in non-standard views like Isometric view or Rotate view.
Workflow for Using Named Presentations
- In a model, draw the desired 3D model. For example, a door.
- In a different view orientation, place elements that you want to view for the model in that view orientation. For example, for a door model, in the Top view, you will draw the commonly used symbol of door in plan views, which is a rectangle with an arc and line indicating the door and its swing.

So, in our door example, in the Top view, you will see just the door symbol, which is a rectangle with an arc and line.
