My smart view results in an empty view

All Smart views start with an empty view. To see the components you want, you must always explicitly add them to the view by using one of the three ADD actions.
  1. Add
    Add elements to the view with their original color
  2. Add and set colored
    Add elements to the view and display them with a color of your choice
  3. Add and set transparent
    Add elements to the view and display them transparent


If the view is still empty after having added elements, this means no elements meet the defined properties in the Smart view.
