In x3dom, you can switch viewpoints using the "bind" attribute (it's a special kind of field), or, more easily, using the pg up / pg down keys.

I don't know about authoring tools, but usually x3d browsers have a way to advance down a list of viewpoints.
Vivaty: right click> Views> Next, Previous, Last, First, Default
Freewrl: menubar: < and> buttons, or keyboard 'v'=next 'b'=back
