For example, if I make only View[1] visible ("Nodal scalar map") and step forward to time step 1, then View[0] ("A scalar field") and View[2] ("Element 1 vector") remain on time step 0 when made visible. Is there an option such that all views step forward to time step 1 when I do this?

Hi Lachlan - Currently the only way to do what you want is to 

- Open "Tools->Options"
- Select the views you want step through in the left browser (you can select more than 1)
- Change the step using the "+" sign next to "Time step"
