In some drawings the viewports automatically display viewport objects when I copy them and some they do not. There must be a systems variable and I searched through the systems variable tool in the Express tools and couldn't find it. Does anyone know how to get consistent results when copying viewports.

Nope, that is why I'm asking. In previous releases they were always off. When we upgraded to 2010 I was so excited that they are on when you copy. I have one drawing where the viewports don't stay on. I don't want to rebuild this drawing just because of this issue.
If you mean copying them from one layot tab to another in the same file, they should retain their layer settings in newer versions of AutoCAD. If you're trying to copy from one file to another it won't work. In older versions, you can make the viewport a block and then copy it to another tab in the same file, and then explode it -- and it should retain its layer settings that way.
