Adding View Windows

Add more view windows whenever you want to sub-divide the Structural Graphics display into separate windows. Splitting the Graphics display like this allows you to view different parts or aspects of a structure in each window you add. You can also apply different attributes, like color or shape assignments, in the different view windows.

This feature can be particularly helpful when you are working with a large and complicated structure.

To add view windows, proceed as follows.

  1. Either:
    • Click on the menu options Options ® Further view, or
    • Click on the plus sign (+) in the top right corner of the display area.

Another view window appears.

You can determine how multiple view windows are arranged in the Structural Graphics display, for example, side-by-side or stacked, using the arrange views option. See Arranging Views
