In case the Flow Chart View is open, the dialog can be opened also by right-clicking an empty area on the flowchart and selecting the "View Settings" menu item from the pop-menu. The Flow Chart View, the Navigator View, and the Matrix View each have their own View Settings dialog, and the corresponding dialog will be opened depending on which of the views is open.

To modify existing view settings, select the desired settings and click the Edit button. With the Copy button you can duplicate the selected settings and any other settings than the default settings can be deleted with the Delete button. Select the desired settings and click the Set as Default button to make the selected settings the default settings for the model.
