how to save map view to preserve map layer attribute settings

I'm looking for a way to save my 2D Map view such that all my map layer attributes (eg colour, line thickness etc) are saved. I wish to have several saved views with different attribute settings that I can reload .

    Hi @FeargalMurphy. We have a snapshot tool in the Map menu called Create a snapshot. However all that does is save the current extents of your map.

    For what you are trying to do, I think you will need to create copies of each map layer and change the attributes for each one. Then you can turn them on and off as you see fit.

    To create a copy of a layer:

    1. Select the layer in the map manager.
    2. Right-click on the map and click copy.
    3. Right-click again on the map and click paste.
