Interface Organization

Over the years the Navisworks interface has remained relatively unchanged—until the 2011 release. Autodesk introduced a new interface based on tabs and panels, all the while keeping some of the features from the previous versions. With the Navisworks 2012 release, new features for TimeLiner and Clash Detective have been added, along with additional interface improvements.

Application Menu: The Green N

A basic starting point within Navisworks, the Application menu, or green N, contains operations like New, Open, and Save. Several other useful operations that can be performed from here are explained in Figure 1.1.

TOOLTIP

If you hover your mouse cursor over any area in Navisworks, you get a tooltip, as shown here. Tooltips briefly explain the tool and may contain information about shortcuts (such as pressing Ctrl+A for Append). Also, if you leave your mouse in place a little longer, you will gain a longer explanation of the tool—the tooltip will expand into a definition from the help file.
