    Default Using a field to track the Scale of a viewport,,,Viewport from Object?

    I want to link a Field to a Viewport to track the Viewport Scale. However, the Viewport was created from an Object. When I try to select the Viewport I get a list of the items (Polyline and Viewport). I try to select the Viewport option and get,,, nothing.
    Is this possible or not?
    If I have to I can always create a Viewport all by itself but since I have the Object I would like to use it. Call it a challenge. Besides a Viewport is a Viewport regardless of it's origins.
    Thank you

    In the Field dialog, change Field Category to Objects, Field Names to Object, Object Type use the Select button to select your Viewport, the select the desired property.

    Standard Viewport, or Viewport from Object does not matter.
