Working with layout viewports
When you begin working in a drawing on the Model tab, it consists of a single
view of your model. You may have created additional views by dividing the drawing
space into multiple windows; each window is a separate viewport on the Model
On a Layout tab, you must create at least one layout viewport to see your model.
However, you can create multiple layout viewports that display unique views
of your model located in model space. Each layout viewport functions as a window
into your model space drawing — with each window looking different from
the next. You can customize the view center, scale, layer visibility, and contents
of each layout viewport. Each layout viewport is created as a separate entity
that you can move, copy, or delete.
Click any layout viewport to make it the current viewport, and then add or
modify model space entities in that viewport, even while snapping to model space
entities from paper space. Any changes you make in one layout viewport are immediately
visible in the other viewports (if the other layout viewports are displaying
that portion of the drawing). Zooming or panning in the current viewport affects
only that viewport.
