  2. Select how you want to share the viewpoint:
    1. Do not share
    2. Share with everyone in my organization
    3. Share with everyone on this project
  3. Click Add to add the view to the Model Stack pane.
The New Viewpoint window.
  1. If you selected Share with everyone on this project in Step 5, you will see the New Viewpoint window. Here you can chose to share either the viewpoint or all of the models currently visible in the viewer.
