Hi all, When generating a detail view and placing it into a drawing sheet, the viewport extent is visible when you pass your cursor over it. In most cases this box is large. When a number of detail views a placed onto a sheet it can become difficult to locate a particular detail in order to manipulate it direct from the sheet. You need to hide a number of viewports to get to the one you want. How can I adjust this viewport extent? cadjockey

Are you talking about the crop region cadjockey ? Switch on in view and reduce its size then switch to not visible ?

Hi fazerneil, Thanks for the reply. No. I'm talking about something else. Let's say you have created a section view at 1:50. You create a callout over a part of that section. This callout as you know can now be scaled to a different scale and placed onto another drawing sheet. In doing this you will notice as you hover you cursor over the callout view the viewport extent box of the refering view is highlighted. It is not visible unless you run your cursor over it. The challenge with this is when you have a series of callouts that you have placed onto a sheet (a sheet showing specific details) it becomes impossible to select a particular detail in order to make it active and work on that view. You need to hide a number of the callouts until you reach the one you want. This is very frustrating. Do you know how I can remove or control the extent of the viewport? cadjockey

I have run into this as well, all I can tell you from my experience is that there is something else within that view. For instance; I select an elevation or a detail and place it on my sheet, I experience what you are talking about. What I have done to correct this is either activate the view or go back to it and start searching for the culprit, it's usually some CAD drawing that was MIA or note. Once I delete this or move it back to where it belongs it usually solves the problem. To do this you may have to zoom way out, sometimes it's as easy as zooming out far enough to grab the view extents box and drag it back to where you want. Hope this helps you, I know that this problem can be very annoying.

Hi mwenta, That is probably the case. I am hoping it is. However, I have noticed that the extent of the viewport represents the size of the viewport that the parent view has. cadjockey
