Multi View Panes Default to Split Vertically?

Recommended Posts

Is there a setting to default Multi View Panes to Split Vertically? Seems that it only breaks the screen into 4 quadrants. I just need 2 quadrants, so I always have to close 2 of the view panes (I sense a pun here, but I will refrain!)

It does not look like there is any control over this, even with scripting.

 

If this is not something you turn on and off frequently, could you just set up your template file to have the two vertical panes and leave it on?

You jumped in on that quick @Pat Stanford!

 

Yes I was going to say the same thing. Your favourite template 'starter' saved with the panes you want works well. It will remember the view chosen for each pane as well rather than randomising.

Thanks, I will modify my templates. Interestingly, I just tested turning off Enable Multi View Panes and turned it back on, and it retains my 2 panes split vertically setup. Nice!

But it is not retained after a quit of Vectorworks or a computer restart. Maybe I'm wrong about this. I need to test more.

@Pat Stanfordis correct.

The ViewPane and splitter data are saved with the document.

So you are able to save your templates with your preferred view pane configurations.

But if you do not load from the template when creating a new file, it will create the default pane and splitter configurations.
