Open dwg to Specific Layout

113 Views, 2 Replies

I would like to open a drawing to a specific layout using a shortcut. I know it works using a script file when starting up autocad, but I can't get it to work when I'm just opening a new drawing while Autocad is already running.

The startup switches only seem to work when actually starting a new instance of Autocad and I need to avoid that. I want different users to be able to use this shortcut transparently.

Thanks,
Steve

There is nothing built-in, you will need to customize:

Not exactly what you asked for but you could explore saved views and Partial
Open.
