Then you just plonk it wherever you want on the page.
I'm really struggling with this, I can make a four viewport layout and then stick different views in them but this is not what I want.
I'm using R14 btw.
You can utilise the View Toolbar to navigate in your model, saving each as a view. Alternatively in modelspace the command is vpoint...hit return twice this should give you tripod. You can also use dview to create various views. You can also change UCS and create different elevation views, then go to paperspace and in vports insert the views. When you create a drawing like this I tend to dimension in paperspace. Hope this helps.
Thanks in advance,
