Command Location: Tools Menu and Views Menu
The different 'modes' in MidiIllustrator all have an associated 'view' which is optimized for working in that mode. The associated view is selected only when first entering a new mode and can generally be changed thereafter (Layout Mode is an exception, see below).
If you change views whilst in a particular mode, MidiIllustrator will remember your preference and set the view each time you enter that mode.

The table shows which view is selected by default when entering each mode.
|Performance Mode||Window View||Optimal for studying scores; fits the most music into the available screen real estate.|
|Layout Mode||Page View/Print Preview||This is the only view available for Layout Mode, as the layout settings are only applied when the score is formatted for the printed page.|
|Edit Mode - Normal Entry||Scroll View||A single system scrolling horizontally along the page makes editing much simpler as the dynamic changes to the score object sizes which occur as you edit (eg staff height) do not result in constant reformatting of the score.|
|Edit Mode - Mouse Entry||Scroll View||As above, for Normal Entry.
Note that when switching between Normal Entry and Mouse Entry modes, the view will not be reset to Scroll View if another view has been selected.
|Edit Mode - Power Edit||Window View||Optimal for manipulating large portions of notation; fits the most music into the available screen real estate.|
