All 3-D viewers in ElumTools utilize the same navigation commands. Currently this applies to the Photometric Web viewer in the Light Source - Source Position tab in Luminaire Manager and the Calculation Viewer (rendering). When you close the Calculation Viewer (rendered view) your last know settings will be retained (font, size, color, viewpoint, pseudocolor and more).
