Sometimes you want to return the view to the way the person who published the DWF file intended. To do that, reset the view. When you reset a view in Design Review you have two choices: the home view and the starting view. The home view is a particular view of a file defined by the designer before publishing the DWF file. Designers often set a home view to show a part or design a certain way to reviewers. The starting view is the view that happened to be displayed at the time the designer published the file.
If the file has no specified home view, the starting view is shown. If the designer had the home view displayed at the time the DWF file was published, the starting and home view are the same in Design Review.
