Join Jim LaPier for an in-depth discussion in this video Viewport layers, part of AutoCAD for Mac 2015 Essential Training.
- In a previous video, we discussed Layer States,…the ability to turn Layers on and off,…en masse, to restore a view.…This allows us to stack geometry on top of other geometry…to help curtail issues and errors.…Fortunately, Viewport support a feature that allow us…to turn on or off Layers in a Viewport…without affecting the Layer's on or off state…in the rest of the drawing.…This means a Layer, like first-floor windows,…can be on in one Viewport,…and off in another where it's not needed.…
I'll make sure that my Viewport Layer is active here,…and then I'm going to select New Viewport.…I'll create one Viewport here, and another one here.…I'm going to double-click inside my upper left Viewport…and, from here, I have a few options.…I can turn off the Layers individually,…or, if I slide the Layer slider over,…I can find this icon, which stands for Viewport Freeze,…and I can freeze individual Layers…only within that Viewport.…
One last option, since we were smart enough…to use Layer States, we can activate a Layer State,…
