    Default Plotting Viewport 2

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I have created a customised paper size in page setup (3000X900mm); the viewport is a clipped polygon which was chosen as I wished to create a small legend in the bottom corner.

    Although the drawing has only 1 viewport, when I attempt to plot, the console reads "plotting viewport 2" and nothing actually plots. The plotter is working fine for other drawings. Any ideas what might be wrong?

    If you didn’t explicitly disabled it, there will be a new viewport in each new layout (Options -> Display -> Layout elements -> Create viewport in new layouts). So, probably there is another viewport below the one that you just added. Chances are that the contours of this viewport are on drawing area’s edges, so not easily visible; to check this do a zoom extends and chose View -> Zoom -> Out from menu to investigate.
