Where you may run into a problem is when two viewports overlap, because AutoCAD always favors the larger viewport over the smaller one. So the smaller ones are difficult to select. In this lesson we will learn a shortcut that makes it easy to access any viewport on a layout. On my screen I have a drawing of an office floor plan. Let's take a look at the layout that's been set up for this file.
