Switches between Model & Paper Space Randomly Why?

Recommended Posts

BrentAtterton

When I'm using a view port and in model space and typically it's doing a dimension, I go and pick the first pick point and go to move the second point it switches to paper space? Why?

I'm using AutoCAD 2020

 

Help

I prefer dimensioning in Paperspace, rather than through the viewport and in Modelspace.

 

I use AutoCad 2016, and was unable to replicate the issue of which you spoke.

Perhaps it is a bug in 2020?

Not sure never used it.

 

If you are inside an active viewport, as shown in the screenshot, you might do better to use

the VPMAX button which I have circed in red.

After you have done so, that Icon will change to allow you to VPMIN and go back to Paperspace, on the fly.

Do you have the latest update 2020.1.3 you can check using the 'ABOUT'' command.

It sounds like you are working in a locked viewport and panning (moving?). If so, AutoCAD needs to switch to paper space while panning and then switch back to model space to execute the command.

Well, are you working in a locked viewport?
