Have You Tried: Pre-scaled Layout Viewports


By Lee Ambrosius

We’ve streamlined the way you create layout viewports. In the past, there were several steps you needed to follow to insert a view from model space onto a layout and get it sized correctly. This process was time consuming and inefficient.

New options in the MVIEW command make it much easier to create, scale, and place new views on a layout. For example, we added a new grip that you can use to specify or change the scale of a view. Other grips make it easy to move layout viewports and to change their boundaries.
