Chapter 19. Paper Space Layouts > Working with Viewports in a Layout

Working with Viewports in a Layout

Viewports (Mviews) created in a layout have unique settings for controlling the appearance of your project’s model. If you control layer visibility, hidden line removal, and model-to-paper space scale, your finished plot can display objects precisely as needed. More importantly, you can control these properties on a viewport-by-viewport basis, even when you have several viewports on a single sheet. The capability to control how your model space project appears through these viewports is a powerful feature.

AutoCAD 2000 introduced a new feature that greatly enhances the usefulness of floating viewports. For example, you can now create non-rectangular viewports. You can also clip a viewport and resize it to any shape by using grips. Additionally, you can lock the display scale of a viewport so it is not accidentally modified when you zoom or pan in the viewport.
