Heads-up View Toolbar

A transparent toolbar in each viewport provides all the common tools necessary for manipulating the view.

Custom and camera views you define appear on the View Orientations flyout .

This toolbar replaces the view pop-up menu associated with the reference triad.
To customize the Heads-Up View toolbar, click Tools > Customize and select the Toolbars tab:
  • Select or clear View (Heads-Up) to show or hide the toolbar.
  • To add toolbar buttons, select the Commands tab. Drag a button from a category to the toolbar. We recommend that you search for buttons in the Flyout Toolbars and View categories.
  • To reorder buttons, drag them to a new location on the toolbar.
  • To remove a button, drag it off the toolbar.
You can also show or hide the Heads-Up View toolbar by selecting or clearing View > Toolbars > View (Heads-Up).
