Manage Map Layouts

From the Map View page, you can save topology map layouts, quickly load them to the topology map, edit the saved layouts, or delete saved layouts.

To save a map layout so you can quickly load it into the topology map:

  1. Click Network > Topology.

    The Topology page is displayed with the topology map at the center and the network information table at the bottom of the page.

  2. Right-click on the topology map and select Layout >Manage Map View.

    The Manage Map View pane is displayed on the right.

  3. Click Save.
  4. Enter a name for the current layout.
  5. Enter a description for the current layout.
  6. Specify whether the saved layout is to be shared with all operators (shared) or is to be available only to you (private).
  7. Click Save.

    The current layout is saved and listed on the Map View table.


You can also right-click a blank part of the topology map pane and select Save Default Map Layout to save the current layout as your default. This action saves the current layout as your default, but does not change the name of the default map layout in the Manage Layouts window.

Table 1 describes the functions you can perform on the saved layouts.
