Creating a new view using the New View tool
The New View button allows you to create a new view by doing the following:
- Browse to and select a database to store the new view.
- Create a unique name for your new view.
- Type a description of the new view.
In addition, the Always override current map settings (Static view) check box allows you to indicate what the default property will be for the new view and whether the view will always override the current map settings. Static views always override all current map settings when applied to a map.
