In AutoCAD 2007 I used a couple of handy commands to lock & unlock viewports; LV to lock ,& ULV to unlock, a chosen viewport. This seems not to work in 2008. does anybody know of a simple substitutes for these commands in 2008?

That must have been a LISP you were running. It should still be on your machine somewhere. Do a search for ".lsp" files. Then search those files for "C:lv" and/or "C:ulv". Find that file and that is the one you need to load again
Or I have seen several versions in the customization group. If you have a lot of layouts there is a nice free VBA utility on the Dotsoft site that unlocks all of the viewports without toggling through every layout. It is very nice and quick. Look for "Layout Manager Lite".

Or you can just go to the command alias editor and add those shortcuts to
those commands.

Just a little tip. When inside a viewport you can lock/unlock it buy
clicking the padlock down by your little annotation icons (drawing
status bar).

That was great! Something so easy and so very useful. I completely missed
that one.
Thank you!
