viewport and layout page
« on: March 04, 2014, 08:19:12 pm »
I have my CAD drawing done, and need to put in my layout page.  I forgot how to do this.  I watch the videos from my AutoCAD class, and they show the viewport in paperspace.  Mine does not.  How do you do this.

You need to make a new viewport on the layout page. It sounds like you have the page setup in layout mode / paper space. If you need help with this let us know.
To get the viewport on the page, go to the Layout tab on the Ribbon. Where it says Layout Viewports, click Rectangular.
Make a viewport on the page by creating a rectangle.
You will need to adjust it by stretching the viewport, after you set the scale of it. Attached is a PDF that shows how to do this.
If you need further help please ask.
