Grabbing Viewport geometry (and notes, callouts) and moving to model space

I need to modify an old drawing. It has viewports defined in paper space. I would prefer to just copy all the geometry in paper space and move it to model space. The changes I need to make are simple and I don't have time to learn how the previous person setup this dwg. Are there any scripts, Lisps to grab that data? Right now I can only grab the notes/callouts. Any help please? Thanks!

CHSPACE should be able to grab all the geometry in Paper Space. Then you select the target viewport and it should move it...or am I missing something obvious from your problem?

I'm trying to figure out how to select the target viewport. Can it be Model Space?

click on the vp you want, only in PS.
Don't forget to unlock the layers that you wanted to change space.

Don't forget that if the VPs are diff scalefactors that you have to CHSPACE to each scale factor ... ie: one VP is 2:1 and another is 4:1 then you will need to select the geometry that goes with each VP individually and select that VP as target.

Actually, in my experience, you need to select the geometry for each VP and CHSPACE that VP even if they are the same scalefactor. There will be issues if you don't.
