Saved View Navigation

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to use a keyboard, or a stream deck to navigate between saved views.  Is there a way to fire a VectorScript or create a keyboard shortcut to navigate between saved views?

Saved views are Vectorscripts (hidden deeply under the skin). You  can open the Saved View Palette and call up any saved view from there.


You could relatively easily make a Plugin Command, add it to your workspace and add a keyboard shortcut to allow easier access if you really need that.

How do I make a Plugin Command?

Use the PlugIn Editor under the Tools:Plugins menu. Create a new Command. Edit the Script. For the script enter:


VRestore('Name of Saved View to Restore');



obviously change the string to be the name of your saved view.


Then add that command to your workspace and add a keyboard shortcut using the Workspace editor.


Take a look at this thread for more information, and ask again if you need more help.
