Layout view outline (not) plotting

Post by GEM » Tue May 24, 2005 10:35 am

I looked at the forum listings going back over a year and I didn't see a question regarding this issue. How can I get the layout view outline rectangle/box not to plot? In ACAD you are able to move the outline to another layer that you shut off. Then the layout outline doesn't plot in paper space. Any suggestions. Thanks

Layout Viewport

Create a new layer, called whatever you wish, then make it current. Now create the Layout Mode viewport on that layer. Switch to another working layer and you can then freeze that viewport layer.

Bingo, Glen!

I use a very sphisticated laying system specially coded for our office. I created a layer in my template drawing called...are you ready for this..."VIEWPORT"!

Create the veiwport in...well...the Viewport layer. Switch back to my SHEET_TEXT layer (I told you it was a sophisticated coding system!) and freeze the VIEWPORT layer. outlines!
