Join Shaun Bryant for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating layout viewports, part of Learning AutoCAD LT.
- In the previous exercise, we set up…our Layout tabs in our floor plan's drawing.…I'm in the D-Size-Details Layout tab here,…and what I need to do is…I need to recreate and generate…some new viewports here.…I'm just gonna zoom out slightly,…and I'm gonna click on the viewport, like so.…Now the good thing about viewports is they've got grips.…So if I click on that grip there,…and just drag that up like that, and click there,…it re-sizes the viewport.…It also re-sizes, in essence,…what's inside the viewport.…
So I can only see part of the model.…Now that's the whole idea.…Now if I just click away from that viewport…and hit Escape and zoom in a bit,…there's the viewport and there's the washroom area…that I want to see in this particular viewport.…So I double-click in the viewport again,…and I zoom in now.…And you can see that I'm zooming in…and making that view bigger…in that particular viewport.…Now what I can do there is…I can also check the scale here.…So it's not .02.…That's roughly, let's say, 1:20ish,…so we'll click there and we'll go for…
