I wonder if I can copy a saved view from one drawing to another and how.
Thank you, that might be a desire for future versions.
There is a way that is not immediate but it works. You can place a camera in the path view and then copy and paste the camera.
A 'view' in ArchiCAD terminology is a saved part of your model (floor plan, section, detail etc etc) with settings for Layer Combination, Scale, Pen Set etc etc saved.

It is part of the work flow of Project Map (your model) > View Map (how to present the model) > Layout Book (your model on 'paper') > Publisher (the end result for the outside world as PDF or printed etc).

A 3D window view of your model is indeed best saved through placing a Camera in a Path. While you can also save a 3D 'view' (with all the settings linked as described above), this will not relate to a camera even if it says you saved Camera X. Move the camera in plan or redine it from 3D, this saved view will not change with it (unfortunately).
