Save and restore camera views independent of Scene tabs

ViewSaver allows you to save and restore camera views independent of Scene tabs.  This is useful if you don't want the overhead of storing style, shadow, hidden geometry, or layer information for some quick viewpoint changes.  In essence, it is the same as a scene tab that stores only the camera settings, but without taking up a scene tab position.


Activate the dialog from the View>View Saver menu item.
In the dialog, you can:

  • click "Add view" to add a view, or
  • click a view name to activate the view, or
  • click the "x" on the right-hand side to delete a view (you will be prompted to verify the removal)


Future Plans

Planned updates include

  • specifying view names
  • renaming views.

Planned Pro features include

  • custom ordering
  • sort and filter functions
  • creating a Scene from a view
  • grouping views
  • sharing views between models

(please note that all planned features are subject to change)

Smustard plugins add command features to simplify repetitive or difficult modeling management tasks - just ask the thousands of users in over 80 countries across all 6 continents! Smustard began in 2006 with the intent of providing quality plugins to the SketchUp community and to help spur development of the SketchUp Ruby API. Smustard continues that effort through the work of the Smustard Team and the guest authors that post their plugins and help contribute to the SketchUp Ruby community. In case you're wondering, the name "Smustard" is a play on words related to our beloved SketchUp. If you remove the letter "S" from both words, you get "mustard" and "ketchup": popular condiments in American culture. Incidentally, the "Sm" sound is pronounced like that in "Smith" rather than "S-mith".
