saving a view from within rview

Hi,

Thanks to Jack and Kirk I have Radiance up and running on Cygwin (I
installed X).

How is the command

: view default.vf

used fom within rview to save a particular view?

Thanks,
Ramana.

Hi Ramana,

When you are running rvu/rview there are a range of interactive commands. Typing view or v in the window will enter into a "dialog" that let you control view parameters. You can try it out and just step through the parameters by hitting return, it will not change anything unless you type in something. When you get a view set up the way you want you can save the setting by typing:

    v my-viewname.vf
    or
    view my-viewname.vf

when you want to use a view that you have saved you would type the following:

    l my-viewname.vf
    or
    last my-viewname.vf

Hope this helps it can be a bit confusing early on but it is worth it. You may want to learn to check and explore the man pages as well for example:
