MULTIVIEW will display a file requester.
If CLIPBOARD is specified, the Clipboard will be viewed instead of the file.
CLIPUNIT specifies the Clipboard unit to use when using the CLIPBOARD
SCREEN indicates that you want the object to appear on its own screen, using
the display mode specifed by the object. For example, if an ILBM was Low Res,
then the screen would match.
If REQUESTER is specified, MULTIVIEW will display a file requester.
BOOKMARK recalls the object and position when opening a file with a bookmark.
FONTNAME specifes which font to use when viewing text objects. FONTSIZE
specifies the font size in points to use when viewing text objects.
