Try this, you can extend using preference

Add di.xml in the below folder


then add the below code to it

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:ObjectManager/etc/config.xsd">
    <preference for="Magento\Framework\Config\SchemaLocator" type="Vendor\ModuleName\Config\SchemaLocator" />

then add SchemaLocator.php in the below path


then add the below code to it

namespace Vendor\ModuleName\Config;
use Magento\Framework\Module\Dir;

class SchemaLocator extends \Magento\Framework\Config\SchemaLocator implements \Magento\Framework\Config\SchemaLocatorInterface
   protected $schema = null;
 * @param \Magento\Framework\Module\Dir\Reader $moduleReader
public function getSchema()
    $result = sprintf(realpath(__DIR__ . '/../etc/view.xsd'));
    return $result;

 * {@inheritdoc}
public function getPerFileSchema()
    return $this->_schema;

the above code will change the path of view.xsd to your custom module from core.

Finally, add the view.xsd in the below path


then you can add you changes there.

NOTE : This is working example in M2.3 and in previous version used plugin instead of preference
