Have You Tried: Pre-scaled Layout Viewports

Recommended Posts

The AutoCAD Blog

We’ve streamlined the way you create layout viewports. In the past, there were several steps you needed to follow to insert a view from model space onto a layout and get it sized correctly. This process was time consuming and inefficient.

New options in the MVIEW command make it much easier to create, scale, and place new views on a layout. For example, we added a new grip that you can use to specify or change the scale of a view. Other grips make it easy to move layout viewports and to change their boundaries.

This is a new feature so if you have an old version of cad it does not work.

 

But a work around for metric users, open the vports toolbar, when you go into viewport mspace a number appears in the toolbar, this is current scale.

 

So zoom in make a guess at correct scale then type a number in the toolbar, for metres its a whole number its 1000/scale so 1:250 = 4 1:100 = 10 and so on. Very simple.
