Switching Modelspace Viewports

I asked this a long time ago but I'm hoping something has changed. If I have 2 Modelspace viewports is there any way to switch their contents? Right now I create 2 views and restore them in alternate viewports.




I actually meant to post this in the Autocad 2012 group. But if anyone here has the answer, it would be appreciated.

I would use named views just as you have. I don't think there is any command or OOTB tool to do it if that is what you are looking for.

I thought as much. I was just hopeful. I have one MS VP open on each of 2 monitors and the way it's set up one is more "in front" of me. So I like to have the one I'm actively working with on that monitor. Today is one of the days I had to switch back and forth a lot. So it came to mind again.
