Have You Tried: AutoCAD Views With Names


By Lee Ambrosius

For this Have You Tried, we’re going to give names to AutoCAD views.

A view consists of a specific magnification, location, and orientation that you can save and assign a name. This is called a named view. Named views make it easy to return to a specific view of the drawing at any time. Specific layer visibility settings can also be included in a named view.

We’ll go over how to:

• Create a named view
• Restore a named view
• Update the named view’s layer visibility settings
• Hyperlink to a named view
• Insert a named view in a layout
