Greetings.

I am going through the moray tutorial (is it OK to ask a question of
that here?).

It says this: "Use the mouse or the transformation buttons to set the
spotlights position to {-10,0,10}. Now we'll rotate the spotlight,
which is currently facing straight down, to point at the sphere. To
control the orientation of the spot light visually we'll replace the
SIDE view with the 3D view of the SpotCam.

Right click while in the SIDE view. Select View Type and choose the
item SpotCam001. This view shows the scene as seen from the
spotlight's point of view (or illumination). "

But when I right click on the SIDE view all I get for menu choices
are:
enable snap, zoom to fit, zoom, pan, select, redraw, maximize, lock
grid, disable grid.

Can someone point me to the option or whatever that enables the "view
type" to become enabled so I can turn the SIDE frame into a camera
view?

Thanks
Jeff

It would be better to ask this question in the group called moray.win.
It should be visible in your list of news groups on this server. That
is where the majority of Moray users on this news server hang out and
they should be able to answer your question.

As Ken said, you should post this in 'moray.win'.
You'll get more and faster answers there (I don't
think there is a lot of "traffic" here).

Anyway, what I think you are trying to do is to
to convert you side view to a camera view directly
(making the location and look at of the side view
the location and look at of the camera).
Well, that's not possible in Moray, since
the Top, Front and Side views are orthographic
views and not related to the position and target
of your camera(s).
In the camera view you have to move your camera
to make the view change too.
You can move your camera as any other object
in the other three views to set its location and
look at. Your camera view chages while you
do that, so it's very easy and intuitive.
(You can also enter the numeric values directly
in the location and look at fields of the camera
object).
Hope this helps.
Bye.
