    Default

    I think that's the default but you can change it. In the upper left hand corner of the viewport there is a drop down list when you click on isometric. You can also click on the controls on the left side which is the box that says top, left, right, front, back. Just click on top and the view will change to a top down view.

    Go to "Viewports" and change "Setup" to "2D"

    Someone at Autodesk has a sense of humour, the default behaviour in full autocad when using the ribbon to create multiple viewports, is to create them all in plan view, but for LT the default is to use the 3D isometric view.
    I've just been down graded from 2012LT to full Autocad 2017. I WANT LT BACK

    Yeah, ever seen inside of their company? Full of Hipsters. They think ironic humor is the best thing since peanut butter and chocolate.
    The S197 gen Ford Mustang, and the F-4 Phantom both prove the same theory. "With enough power applied, a school bus will fly."
