Setting a 3D View point
With the button you can activate the dialog to set a view point. Although the result only has an affect on one or more 3D views, it is possible to set a view point equally in 2D plan views as well as in 3D views. After a click on the button, you can define in the chosen view, with the first left mouse click the view point, and then with the second left mouse click a direction. As an aid, a preview of the direction and current angle defined is shown in all views.
The second mouse-click opens the ‘Properties’ dialog. Apart from the height above the floor, the pitch and the opening angle, you can also specify whether a new 3D view should be opened, or whether the new view point should apply to an existing or all 3D views.
Setting a view point, initially only facilitates navigation to the same position using the other possibilities for 3D views, and is not automatically saved as a view point. If this is desired, the view point must be saved with the button.
