Specifying the default perspective

The default perspective is indicated in the command link Select Perspective dialog (accessible via the Window > Perspective > Open Perspective > Other... menu). The pre-defined default perspective is indicated by the word default in brackets following the perspective name, for example, Resource (default).

To change the default perspective:

  1. Open the command link General > Perspectives preference page.
  2. Select the perspective that you want to define as the default from the list of available perspectives, and click Make Default. The default indicator moves to the perspective that you selected.
  3. Click OK.
