In addition to customizing the components of the perspective, you can also customize the layout of the perspective by moving and resizing containers and components. You can also configure the perspective based upon your monitor display. For example, if you work with the same perspective in different locations, such as viewing the perspective on multiple monitors or on a laptop, you can choose to ignore changes to the layout to ensure the perspective always opens using one screen or both.
In addition to the steps shown in Configuring Perspective Layout Saving, when you change the layout of your perspective and switch to another perspective, a dialog box appears prompting you to save the layout.
- Click Yes: Saves the current layout only.
- Select Remember my decision and click Yes: Saves the changes to the layout and saves any further changes when switching between perspectives by default without prompting you.
- Click No: Discards the changes to the layout.
- Select Remember my decision and click No: Discards the changes to the layout and discards any further changes when switching between perspectives by default without prompting you.
If you have selected Remember my decision and want to change your preference later, see Configuring Perspective Layout Saving.
The View menu also includes Save Perspective Layout and Restore Perspective Layout options.
When you open an application file, the tool defaults to the active perspective of the selected system configuration when displaying the application.
