I'm wondering if there is a way to get a perfect elevation view in equest? All I can find is the Reset Camera option, which is an aerial perspective view.

So the answer is that there isn't an easy way to do this in the eQUEST interface.

If you want to create a custom view you will need to fiddle with the .pd2 text file which is saved in the eQUEST project folder.

In that file there are lines which contain the camera view settings. You could try fiddling around with these settings to see if you can reverse engineer the camera settings. Note that the ViewAngle is the field of view and a larger angle makes the building appear smaller.

Proj   "Project 4"  
   ProgramVersion = "eQUEST 3.65.7175"
   BDBaseVersion = 25
   ProductCode = "eQUEST"
   WeatherFile = "CWEC\Calgary.bin"
   CreateDate = 1626197566
   ModDate = 1626198835
   LibraryFile = "eQ_Lib.dat"
   InputModule = 1
   UseCameraData = 1
   ClippingRange = ( 354.706, 965.578 )
   FocalPoint = ( 88.4, 88.4, 0 )
   Position = ( -592, 0, 60.0467 )
   ViewUpVector = ( 0, 0, 1 )
   ViewAngle = 30
