Creating layout viewports

The first time you switch to a Layout tab, all of your model space entities disappear. You must create at least one layout viewport on the Layout tab to see your work.

You can create layout viewports anywhere inside the drawing area. You can control the number of viewports created and the arrangement of the viewports.

To create layout viewports

  1. Do one of the following:
    • Choose View > Layout Viewports.
    • On the Views toolbar, click the Layout Viewports tool ().
    • Type mview and then press Enter.
  2. In the prompt box, choose Fit To View, Create 2 Viewports, Create 3 Viewports, or Create 4 Viewports, or specify two opposing corners to create a custom viewport.
  3. In the prompt box, choose the viewport orientation.
  4. Do one of the following:
    • To arrange the viewports to fill the current graphic area, in the prompt box, choose Fit To Screen.
    • To fit the viewports within a bounding rectangle, specify the corners of a rectangle.

TIP When you create a layout viewport, the layout viewport border is created on the current layer. You can make layout viewport borders invisible by creating a new layer before you create layout viewports and then turning off that layer after you create the layout viewports. To select a layout viewport’s borders, you must turn that layer back on before you can rearrange or modify the layout viewport.
