The custom page view interface is at the top of every page in the new tm5.
Click the Options button (three dots) to open the edit menu. The menu lets you save, change, or delete custom page views. You can also set a view as default or add it to your bookmarks menu.
Click the down arrow to open the custom views menu. This menu shows all of your saved custom views for this page in tm5. You can also click the Options button for any of your saved views to edit that view.
Each page in the new tm5 has a default view pre-set. This is the system default view for that page, so you cannot edit or delete it.
You can easily create your own custom page views. You can also set one of your saved page views as your own default page view.
Because the table refreshes automatically whenever you navigate to a page, there must always be a default view. In the absence of a customized page view, it is always the system default view. If you delete your default custom page view, tm5 automatically re-assigns the system default view.
