    Hi I am hoping that someone can help me. I am currently studying a AutoCad course. One of the question that i need help with is : What are the key differences in the CAD drafting process used to create Single and Multiple Viewport drawing? Explain the reasons for these differences.

    Do you have some idea yet? This sounds like a homework task. We don't do homework here, but we can help with things you may be stuck on.

    Maybe this question refers to the existence of the idea of 'paperspace' or 'sheets'? Is it multiple choice? What options do you have..? ;-) someone should know.. Good for AU ;-)

    I though the ability to read the bolt size of the head would be usefull in a really zoomed in viewport. Not to mention in the elevation how long is it. There is some hints in that message.

    I didn't see a single "please" in your post.

    What do you know about viewports?

    I draw house plans, so my pages have to convey information in a logical and complementary layout. I will have as many viewports as I need on each sheet to create the paper space page I want.

    It might seem difficult at first but you'll get it.

    Take a piece of paper and hand draw a quick title block on it. Then cut a rectangle out of the middle of the paper. Now hold up the paper and look through the cut out at something. Congrats, that's a viewport. Can you see the value of having enough different views of something on your paperspace?

    Good luck.

    As far as I'm concerned, the first sentence of the OP was a polite way of asking for help and the sarcasm in the rest of your post was also uncalled for.

    Gee, I don't know. Looks like a direct test question.

    "Explain the reasons for these differences."

    That seemed odd to me so I created a scenario, one that made viewports make sense to me quite a while ago. Once the guy/girl gets viewports, he/she will be able to successfully answer that question.

    I thought I was helping. But there's always someone who doesn't get that and feels necessary to try and be some forum cop or self imposed feelings protector. Too bad that frank discussion can't be had. I thought this would be a great place to exchange ideas. I guess only a certain type of posting technique is preferred.

    Cool enough. Thanks. And this is only my 3rd post.

    Rob is our resident pot stirrer and mis-interpreter of context. Don't mind him.

    Even though it's your third post, stick around for a while, this is a good group here and Rob is still valuable to the community. My opinion is this: when I see people in the year 2016 just now signing up to learn AutoCAD by taking a course, I tend to cringe a bit. PDF Viewers have more intuitive funtionality than AutoCAD on some things. Industries have moved on from AutoCAD and while it's still needed for now, in short time you will not gain employment on AutoCAD alone. It will be a must to know something other than AutoCAD. I feel it's wasted efforts, although it's hard to realign an industry that has held AutoCAD at the centerpoint for as long as it has been.

    I'm not sure what there is to misinterpret about, "I didn't see a single "please" in your post." It sounds condescending to me and undeservedly so.

    As to the rest of his post, it didn't even address the differences between single and multiple viewport drawings, which was the question.
