Viewing drawings in paper space and model space

When you work in paper space on a Layout tab, you can still view your drawing in model space. First you need to create a layout viewport in paper space; this allows you to view your model space entities from paper space.

Within a layout viewport you can modify and snap to model space entities while working in model space and even snap to model space entities from paper space. Snapping to model space entities from paper space allows you to accurately dimension model space entities in paper space. And although it is generally more convenient to modify entities on the Model tab, there are often times when it is convenient to make modifications from a layout viewport on a Layout tab.

Zooming or panning the drawing in model space or paper space affects the entire drawing, unless you use multiple windows or viewports. Additionally, if you are working from paper space, you can lock the layout viewport so the viewport scale and view center do not change while panning and zooming in the layout viewport.

To view a drawing in model space on the Model tab

  • Click the Model tab.
  • Right-click the Model/Paper Space toggle in the status bar, and then choose Model.

To view a drawing in paper space on a Layout tab

Do one of the following:

  • Click one of the Layout tabs.
  • Type layout and then press Enter. In the prompt box, choose Set. Type a name for the layout you want to make current, and then press Enter.
  • Double-click the Model/Paper Space toggle in the status bar. For example, double-click "Model" or "M:Tab name" in the status bar to switch to paper space.
  • While using a Layout tab, type pspace and then press Enter.
  • While using a Layout tab, double-click outside of the layout viewport.

The first time you switch to a Layout tab, your drawing seems to disappear. This is normal. You must create at least one layout viewport to see your model.
