Bug Description

Certain options in 3D Viewer are available only through hotkeys. New users would discover them faster if they were available as a menu entry. They are toggle THT/SMD/virtual and predefined views (View Front/Right/Top...). Predefined Views could also have their own toolbar buttons (as is in Preview of pcbnew/footprint properties/3D Settings)
