View Full Version : Linked Viewports
2010-08-19, 03:51 PM
I am working on a template .dwg for my company to use. What I want is to have a layout that has two viewports on it. One viewport that has a building on it, and another viewport that simply has a table showing which layers we have turned on. Is there any way to somehow link the viewports so when I change what displays on one, the other will automatically update to match?
Both the building and the table are in model space.

Change what elements in a viewport?
A viewport is nothing more than a window looking at one exact location in your model space. Having more than one is fine but each is only looking at it's own spot in your model space.

Welcome to the forums!
The short answer is no.
The only way I know of doing this would be to use a reactor such that after any layer modifications, the reactor would step through a list of layers, and notates current status of each for each status item you wish to see in the table.
Quite cumbersome for your typical reactor functions, but it would work. ;)
The bad news, is that LISP is not supported for AutoCAD LT, and you would have to step up into a full version. :cry:
