Saving as a Display State

You can save the Assembly Visualization view as a display state.

  • Click the arrow to the right of the column headers, and click Add Display State.

    When you close Assembly Visualization, the model returns to its original coloring.

    Visualization Display State n appears on the ConfigurationManager tab under Display States. When you double-click the display state, the model is displayed in the colors from Assembly Visualization.

    The display state is a snapshot of the assembly colors when you created the display state. If component property values change, the display state does not update. If you want an updated display state, you need to return to Assembly Visualization and create a new one.
