When you assign a view template to a view, you create a link between the template and the view. Later changes to the view template are automatically applied to any linked views.
If you only want to apply view template properties to a view without assigning the view template, see Applying a View Template.
You can assign a view template to a single view or to multiple views at one time.
To assign a view template to views
- In the Project Browser, select the view or views to which you want to assign a view template.
NoteUse the CTRL key to select multiple views in the Project Browser.
- On the Properties palette, for View Template, click the button in the Value column.
- In the Apply View Template dialog, under View Templates, use the Discipline filter and the View type filter to limit the list of view templates.
- In the Names list, select the view template to apply.
You can use the view properties of another project view as a view template. To do this, select Show Views and select the view name in the list.
- Click OK.
Notice that, on the Properties palette, the value of the View Template property has changed for each view, reflecting the selected view template. If the view template changes later, those changes will automatically be applied to these views.
Also notice that view properties that are controlled by the assigned view template display in gray, indicating that they are disabled. To change those values, you must do one of the following:
- Change the corresponding property in the assigned view template.
- On the Properties palette for the view, change the View Template value to <None> (or to another template that does not define that property). You can then change the view property as desired.
