    I'm wondering if the OP overlooked this answer from another LT user. I don't see where he responded to it.
    When all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.--

    “Doc, it hurts when I do this.” “Well, don’t do that!”

    abraCADabra, I click on vp scale box with an arrow and it maximizes the viewport. Does not reveal Standard scale/Custom for scale selection.

    Walter. Just post your file for us to see, otherwise we're not going to be able to help you!
    If you don't say what you mean, you won't mean what you say.

    But yet, you still ignore the information that I'm searching for to help you - the actual file.
    If you don't know how to attach the *.dwg file here - ask.

    While I am at it.
    Did you reboot the computer and this problem persists?
    Does this problem occur with any new file or just this one on particular?

    Maximize Viewport.jpg The tool on the left is not the same as the tool on the right.

    The tool on the left Maximizes/Minimizes your viewport.
    The tool on the right ONLY appears if you select a viewport boundary.

    JD Mather, Sorry, I am trying to the best of my knowledge to answer each and everyone's question. I don't know how to attach the file. I did reboot the computer and the problem persists. The problem is with all of my (present and past) files.

    Are you sure you are in Paperspace Layout (bottom left corner indicates).
    Are you sure the viewport boundary is on a visible layer and not locked? I'm guessing the book might have had you Lock the viewport. Hmmm, well I just checked and the scale should appear even if the boundary is locked - as long as you have the boundary selected. But if you select that Maximize there is no way to select the viewport boundary - so click again for Minimize.
    Are you sure you have selected the viewport boundary?
    (also - if you double click inside the viewport, but I recommend that you don't do this until you have more experience to realize what this actually does)

    JD Mather, I am in Paperspace; viewport boundary is not locked; I am certain I have selected the viewport boundary.
