The View Settings dialog can be opened by clicking the btn_custom_views Custom views button on the View tab of the ribbon. In case the Diagram View is open, the dialog can be opened also by right-clicking an empty area on the diagram and selecting the "View Settings" menu item from the pop-menu. The Diagram 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.


In this dialog you can create and modify view settings as well as set the default view settings used for the model. To create new view settings, click the New button to open the Diagram View Settings Properties dialog, the Navigator View Settings, or the Matrix View Settings in which you can define the settings. 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. For a Navigator view setting, you can click the btn_drop_down_menu button next to the Set as Default button to select whether you want to set the view as default for the Navigator view or the Diagram Explorer. The default view setting of the Diagram Explorer will also be used in the diagram view in QPR Portal, with the exception that the hierarchy shown in QPR Portal will contain only subprocess type elements.

To have elements tied on the grid points, select the Snap to grid checkbox. The default grid size in the diagram is 10 by 10. To define a different grid size for all open diagrams, modify the X and Y values of the "Grid size".
