Synchronizing Viewports in 2009?

374 Views, 4 Replies

In AutoCAD 2008, under the menu Express>Layout Tools, was the function "Synchronize viewports". This function adjusted the scale of the viewport and the position of the part to match an existing viewport and part.

I can't seem to find the same function in AutoCAD 2009. Match Properties will match the scales up but will not match the part positions up.

Any ideas how to get the old functionality of the Express menu from version 2008 in 2009? Edited by: engineer968 on Oct 20, 2008 1:49 PM

Why not just use the original, which the Autodesk 'bonus team' copied?

AutoCAD 2009 has the command VPSYNC which works identical to the Express Tools' command. I just wish I could find in on the ribbon somewhere.

Not everything is in the menu: add it.
