Hi, I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask, but please do move thread where appropriate.
I'm trying to figure out if it's possible to add another 'window' because I want two viewports that has different scale. For example, I have an elevation of a bathroom and a detail section and I'd like the detailed section to be right next to it, kinda of like zooming onto one area.
Say, I'd like that elevation to be 1/8" =1'-0 on a 11by17 paper but the detail to be 1/4"= 1'-0" or something
Is it possible or is there an alternative to this?
Help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
Further to Rkent make as many as needed you can overlap viewports put a small one inside a big one use a circle as a viewport, use polygon shape.
Thanks! But how do you pan and zoom in within that viewport. It seems to focus only the first viewpoint
That is why I usually don't make viewports overlap one another (or resize and scale the second viewport off to the side initially before moving it over the main one) . You could put them on different layers (Viewport_temp say) so you can freeze one, work on the inside vp, unfreeze that other layer then put them all back on a Viewport layer set to not print etc (so the border doesn't print).
There is a maximum limit to the number of viewports allowed in a layout and that is 64. I believe the default setting is 15 if I recall correctly. To exceed that number one must change the setting for the system variable MAXACTVP.
