Viewport Plot Styles

Is there a way to apply one plot style to a viewport and another plot style to another viewport in paperspace?

What I want to do is have two viewports on the same layout, one viewport set to plot normally and another viewport set to plot faded. Is this possible?

You'll probably have to set different text styles and possibly different layers.

If you are in a "sheet" file and the model contains xrefs only, you can use the old trick of renaming the xrefs and attaching them again.You then have the same info in the drawing twice with unique layer names. Use LAYER to adjust (Screen) one set of layers and VPLAYER to control the visibility in each viewport. Cumbersome but it works.

If you are going the two xref route, you can also put them side by side, and freeze your layers in MS. Then you can jump back and forth easier. If you do annotation and dimensioning in MS this is a big help. If you have adopted PS annotation it is unnecessary. Another benifit of doing it this way is you can create LayerStates that apply to Xrefs, so setting up say a floor plan and ceiling plan is real quick. As far as I know, you would have to do it manually if freezing layers in PS. Best, Gordon
