Custom output views
Output views are tables that display model properties and results. Default output views contain standard tables of properties and results. Within Default output views it is possible to select entities and cases, while the column headers are fixed. Custom output views allow the user to select and combine column headers from different views into a single table.
At the moment, Custom output views are available for properties and results of 1D members and nodes.
