I have not been very clear about what I was suggesting. I'll try to explain.
It is very easy to create a View or Scene using the View Palette or Scene Palettes. I like to use the Navigation tools (ie Set View, Hand, Zoom using my middle mouse button).
Once one gets the View in the modeling window the way one likes clicking the green (+) button in the Views palette creates that view. Easy peezy.
To UPDATE that newly created View one either double clicks a view name or right-clicks the view name. This brings up the View Parameters dialog. I find this dialog box not very intuitive to use.
I would rather:
1. Activate a chosen View. (Click red button in the Views Palette)
2. Change my View or Scene in the Modeling Window using the Navigation tools (Set View, Hand, Zoom etc).
3. Double-Click or Right-Click the Active View and Select an UPDATE VIEWS/ SCENES button.

An alternative to step 3 would be to have a new Update button on the View Palette or Scenes Palette. This would be similar to how SketchUP allows one to update a Scene.

As a newbie I find the Edit Cone of Vision concept cumbersome to use and tend to avoid it when the Navigation tools are so much more intuitive.
Hope I've made this clearer. Sorry for the confusion.
