Eye and Target points

Is there a way to specify an Eye and Target points for a model?

 

I have several different models of the same project but want to show the same view as a screenshot

I guess bookmarks or the right choice for this, but.. you'll have to do some jerky manual gymnastics (as long as there is no import/export bookmark feature and JavaScript API for setting the current Home Position of a model): 1. Set the view to what you want to be used for your models thumbnail 2. Create a bookmark for that view 3. Apply the current view as Home Position for the model using the ViewCube 4. Go to the YOUR_MODEL.files\unver\Bookmarks folder of the model 5. Inspect the contained bookmark .json files to find the bookmark from (2) (look for the bookmark name you used in (1)) 6. Copy the bookmark .json file to all the other models that should use the same view for their thumbnail 7. Apply the bookmark view as Home Position for each of the models => go to the "imported" bookmark => Apply the current view as Home Position for the model using the ViewCube

It seems all my formatting/layouting gets removed from the posts today :smileysad:
