How do I pan in Model Space?

Postby ianw2 » Wed Jul 19, 2006 2:40 pm

Okay…I’m beginning to figure out the Paper Space / Model Space thing in MSCAD2005.

It is considerably different than MSCAD2004.

The one thing I have NOT been able to work out, yet is how to pan the drawing in the viewport. For example, in MSCAD 2004, I could click on the “Layout Mode Viewport Control” button on the Layout Toolbar, select the viewport and have the following choices:

Zoom, Pan, Ratio, 3DView, and Viewpoint

“Pan” allowed me to move the drawing around in the viewport to center a portion of the drawing. When creating details or needing only a portion of the base drawing, “Pan” allowed me to isolate the portion of the drawing I needed.

In MSCAD2005, who do I do the same thing?

You can do this by activating your viewport (either just double click inside the viewport, or go to View > Activate Layout Viewport) then once activated you can pan the drawing around inside the viewport either by using the Pan command or by dragging with your middle mouse button. Similarly, zooming in/out will change the viewport scale.

And when you're done, just double click in the drawing somewhere outside the viewport to inactivate it (Deactivate for those that don't want to inactivate it :lol: [edit by Glen for Ian]).

Outstanding, Brian!

And it works, too!

Glen, you and I are going to have to chat about a tutorial for Paper Space/Model Space.

Darcy, you really have to talk o the Tech Service guys! I mean, come ON! 45 minutes between asking and answering! Good grief! You know, that A-something company would have responded in…..oh, that’s right…they don’t HAVE a forum website.

Too cool, gentlemen!

Thanks! 8)

Brian:

Is "inactivate" Candian for "de-activate"?

Kind of like pr-O-ject?

Ian, have you checked out the movie on Layout Mode in the help file? It goes through some of the basics that may be handy.
