PhotoView Preview Window

The PhotoView Preview window is a separate window from the main SolidWorks window.

To display this window, with PhotoView added in, click PhotoView 360 > Preview Window.

The window maintains the aspect ratio set in the PhotoView Options PropertyManager when you resize the window.

Updates are interrupted when a change requires a rebuild. After the rebuild, the updates continue. You can interrupt the updates for performance reasons by clicking Pause.

Window buttons:
Pause Stops all updates to the preview window.
Reset Updates the preview window and resumes the transmission of updates from SolidWorks.
