Minor Improvement to Answers editor in Oracle BI Cloud Service #OBIEE #BICS

One of the nice new features in the Oracle BI Cloud Service version of Answers is the button that has been added to each view in the Compound Layout which provides access to the View Properties dialog box for the view.

Now, rather than having to edit the view and then click on the View Properties icon, the properties can be accessed directly.    It's a small change to the UI but a welcome improvement.
