In this video, Shaun Bryant shows you how to lock scaled viewports to preserve viewport settings and the viewport scale in your AutoCAD drawing.
- [Instructor] We're moving into a new chapter now … in our AutoCAD course where we're going … to be looking at layouts and annotation. … So we're going to be spending a lot more time … in the Layout tabs, the paper space of the drawing. … Speaking of drawings we've got a new drawing for you … it's called 00-Ground Floor Plan_REVISION b.dwg. … As usual you can download that … from the library to follow along … with these particular videos in this chapter. … Now we're in the Layout tab already … and you can see that we've got the ISO-A1 Landscape … Layout tab activated. … And you can see that we've got … a single viewport available to us in that Layout tab. … And if we select the viewport, … like we've done in previous videos, … you'll see it highlight and you can see the grips there. … Now you'll notice in the status bar … in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen … that the scale is set to one to 100. … It's a metric drawing, therefore it's a metric scale … of one to 100 on the viewport scale list there. …
