Harrison-Dean
Provides options for copying or renaming multiple views as well as applying view templates.

General Usage Instructions

To open the application, select the button "View Manager" within the “View Manager” Panel of the Add-Ins Ribbon Tab (see image 1).

This will open the dialog "View Manager" and show all the views within the active document, you can select to duplicate views or rename existing views (see image 2). 

To Duplicate Views.

Select the “Duplicate View” radio button. 

When duplicating a view, you can determine whether both the model geometry and the detailed geometry are copied into the new view or whether to copy as a dependent (see image 3).

Select the views to be duplicated either by checking the items individually or use the "Check All" radio button.

Filter.

Two filters can be applied to ease identification of the required views, either individually or combined.

Use the Type drop-down list to filter views by type and or the Name filter to filter views by a text string (see image 4).

Prefix and Suffix

Prefix and or Suffix can be applied to the view name by providing the required text string to the respective text boxes.  You can also select the number of copies of each selected view to be made (see image 5).

Select the button “Copy Views to Duplicate” (see image 6). This copies the views into the “Views to Duplicate” list.  

At this stage, you can apply a template to each view from the drop down list from the column headed “Templates” (see image 7). 

Any names that are duplicates are highlighted in Red (see image 8). Final adjustments to the name can be made by selecting and providing a bespoke name.

Select the “Add Views” button to apply the Views to your document (see image 9). 

To remove items from the “Views to Duplicate” list simply select the check box and select clear (see image 10).

To Rename Views

The process is very much the same to rename views as it is to duplicate views.

As above filters can be applied to ease identification of the required views.
