Switch between views

You can easily switch between all open views while modeling. You can also switch between the 3D and plane view to examine the current view from different perspectives, or switch between view angles to show the model in different angles.

Switch between open views

To switch between open views, do one of the following:

  • Use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Tab.
  • Click Window and select a view from the list.

    The views are listed in alphabetical order.

  • Right-click a view, then select Next window from the pop-up menu.

    The next open view becomes active.

Switch between 3D and plane view

Use the Switch to 3D or plane command to examine the current view from different perspectives.

  • On the View tab, click Switch to 3D or plane.

    You can also press Ctrl+P.

Use the View angle command to show a view in different view angles.
  1. Select the view, and click View angle on the contextual toolbar.
