This is a simple one, but not sure how many are aware of it. This will work for $$ViewTemplate for someView, and $$ViewTemplateDefault.
In a viewtemplate-form, you can use either a field named $$ViewBody or an embedded view to "hold" the view content/body of the view.
If you use $$ViewBody, you have to use url-parameters to override the default count of 30 entries.
If you use an embedded view in a template, you can control if the view-header is visible, border around the view, the default count (up to the limit set on the server, normally 1000 entries), the default target for ( notes-generated ) links in the view ( generates target-attribute on the links ). It doesn't look like you can disable the action-bar of the view though.
The simplest way to add embedded view to the template, create embedded view -> Choose a View based on a formula -> "" (<-- just use an empty string for the view formula, to avoid confusion in the future).
Run the "Make2000Documents" agent to ... generate 2000 documents. Test out different settings on the embedded view in $$ViewTemplateDefault, and open the subject-view to the the effect.
( There are probably a lot of bad naming practices visible in the demo-db. This is because I just started to test out some stuff, and then I decided to post the "stuff" here. ).
