    The standard and custom scale headings in properties are only available when you highlight paperspace viewports, they won't show in model space viewports, or when a paperspace viewport is activated.

    Use printscreen to capture the view of what you're looking at.

    Copy the printscreen into MS Paint or similar application and save it. (Ctrl + V when copying the printscreen)
    This space changes a lot. Normally dependant on mood.

    Walter, What does appear in your properties bar?

    Are your viewports created from polylines?
    If you don't say what you mean, you won't mean what you say.

    Yeah how d'you like them apples?

    Lost me on that one - I thought we were talking about viewport scales, not dimensions.
    ....and still you haven't attached a file or screen capture.

    (...and I can't remember back to r2006, but in r2014 it doesn't matter how the viewport is created... ... I doubt it mattered back then)

    Quite correct JD it doesn't matter how it's created, but if selected the properties of either the viewport or the polyline can be viewed, that is what I was trying to acertain. The OP might be selecting his viewport but viewing the properties of it's make up item.

    At this point the OP really should consider about posting a graphical view of the issue otherwise we're guessing in the dark trying to figure out best achieve what the OP wants.

    JD Mather, This is exactly what I am searching for. I opened my paperspace through 'Create Layout Wizard,' clicked on the viewport border expecting what you have attached but instead have 'blue grips' at each viewport border corner.
