D. Using View Windows

View windows are used to display all or parts of the structural model. Most model object selection is made using the mouse pointer (through various object cursor tools) in the view windows.

Multiple view windows may be open simultaneously. The top view window is referred to as the active view window. Actions which affect view windows are typically applied only to the active view window.

Views are manipulated by the view and zoom tools found on the Standard toolbar or by the Orientation dialog.

Tip: View Windows have context-sensitive pop-up menus. When different items are selected (or even when there is no selection), right-clicking will display commonly used functions for the current selection set.
