The Views menu allows you to change the current view, save changes to a view, share a view, and manage existing views.

To open the Views menu, click the Views icon (the 3 vertical lines in the top-right corner of the Structure panel). Depending on where you're viewing the structure, the current view's name may be listed next to the Views icon.

In the Views menu, you will see the following:

  1. The current view's name. Hover the mouse over the name to see the view's description.
  2. If the view was modified, you'll see a corresponding message and links to save or revert these changes. Additionally, in the Associated Views/Recent Views sections, a blue asterisk will appear next to the name.
  3. Permissions settings and a link to change them.
  4. Search View. Search looks for any views that match the entered name, not only those in this list.

  5. Associated Views list. This list can be customized for each structure by the structure owner or anyone who has Control access level for the structure – see Customizing View Settings.
  6. List of views you have recently used (excluding the views shown in the section above).
  7. Manage Views link, which opens the View Management dialog.

Switching Views

To switch the current view, open the Views menu. From there, you have three ways to choose the new view:

  1. Select it from the drop-down list. (This is the easiest method, but it may not include all available views.)
  2. Search for it in the Search View panel.
  3. Click Manage Views... to see all available views.

Switching View with Keyboard

You can also switch the current view using only the keyboard:

  1. Use the vv shortcut to open the Views menu (hit "v" twice).
  2. Use the arrow keys to select a view, or enter text to search for matching views.
  3. Hit Enter to switch to a selected view or Escape to close the menu.
