    "Views are map settings that can be saved to and retrieved from any geodatabase. They allow you to manage the properties of a data frame and layers so they can be reapplied at any time while allowing you to decide which current map properties to keep and which to override." (ArcGIS Help)
    While working with "Views", it was determined that the "View Settings" play a major role. The user has to check the "View Settings" otherwise various and difficult-to-follow effects will come up. The first wish is, that the default "View Settings" should have the entry "Keep current map settings". The second wish is, that the "View Settings" can be saved with the View so that the right changes will be done during the usage of the view.
