You will notice when creating a new plan, 2020 Fusion defaults with some automatic named views. These are 'Plan,' 'Elevation' (the number depends on the amount of walls in the room) and 'Perspective.'
In addition to these, certain actions within 2020 Fusion will populate more automatic named views, for instance when adding in a worktop and tiling.
The worktop named view allows you to show only the worktops, and more specifically, the measurements for the worktops.
The tiling named view will display in elevation in colour fill and draft renders. This also shows the dimensions.
When adding an item using the 'Installation Symbols Selector,' an installation named view will appear.
This named view will also automatically display the relevant dimensions.
1. To generate a named view, click on the plus icon along the bottom left of the toolbar when in your design.
You can use this tool in plan, elevation or presentation view.
2. You can name the views to help distinguish them from one another.
To do this, double-click the named view tab. This will highlight the text. You can then input your own.
Note - this can only be done on named views you have created.
3. You also have the ability to swap these with one another.
This is achieved by left-clicking, holding the button down and dragging the tab along to where you want it.
However, you can't move a named view in front of the ones that are automatically generated.
4. You can also hide or delete the view by right-clicking the tab and selecting one of these options.
5. If you want to create separate named views with different settings, you can opt to turn off the lighting and layer settings that are associated with your main views.
This allows you to have different themes or lighting effects.
6. Note that when you choose to deselect one of these settings, the named view tab colour will turn from pink to blue.
7. 'Show Unknown Layers' determines whether any new layers will be shown when a unit is added that introduces a new layer.
If this option is deselected, any new layers that are created would not be shown.
An example of this would be adding a new catalogue to a room and bringing in a unit that creates a new layer. If you then go to the named view with this option turned off, this layer will not be visible.
8. Under the 'View' tab, you can use the Save View button to save your favourite named views.
9. These views are stored within the 'Navigate View' palette so you can access them quickly
10. Right-clicking these view points brings up four different options.
11. 'Apply View Point' lets you change the current named view angle to one of the view points you have created.
You can do this by either right-clicking the view point itself or by right-clicking the named view.
12. 'Update View Point' is used when you want to play with the angle, theme, contrast, etc. for a view point.
When making changes to a named view, you can right-click your saved view and click this button to apply the changes to that particular view.
13. 'Rename View Point' makes it easy to differentiate between your views quickly.
When you have saved the view you want, choose this option and pick a name for your view.
14. 'Delete View Point' allows you to delete any of your view points if need be.
15. Note that these views will now show when configuring a movie.
This makes it easier to identify the views you want to use.
