    Default Viewport Help

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Hi,

    I can't seem to pan or zoom, and the viewport is NOT locked. Please help. I keep having to delete the viewports and start over. Easy fix but time consuming when I have to recreate a dozen layouts.

    Thank you!

    You will have to post a drawing exhibiting that problem. You may not be able to attach a file yet in here, leave in a drop box somewhere and post the link.

    If its a large drawing file size wise, it could simply be an overwhelmed video processor issue. Did you try the REGEN command when this occurs?

    Welcome to CADTutor!

    This will sound like a strange question, I know, but how did you get INTO the viewport?

    How many viewports are there in the layout?
    What is your current VPMAX system variable setting?

    Two viewport on top of each other?

    That is a good hypothesis, and always confusing when it happens.
    Try selecting the viewport (or viewports) with a crossing window, and look in properties or quick properties, to see what is really there.
    Meaning, how many viewports.
    Or you could turn on Selection Cycling to see if there is something hidden.

    Mostly do drafting related to manufacturing. From doing site layouts with proposed updates, additions and renovations to be budgeted and submitted for bid, to updating and changing existing drawings to reflect maintenance and repair/revision work done on site.

    No reason the OP shouldn't be able to post a .dwg, they will however need approval for a link.
