Re: Export Layout crashes

I used to work for a smaller firm where we did have to do this. This was before Export Layout was available. What I would do is to use Chspace to move the VP and TB to Model Space. Then I'd use EXtrim to trim out everything outside of the Viewport. After that I would WBlock what was left to a new file, undo and start the next layout. That was the best we could work out at the time.

I tried that last week.   However I found it changed object sizes, annotative text scales, resized and  repositioned object labels.  It was not pretty at all.   Maybe I had something set up wrong?  So much to learn.

C3D objects rotate, change size etc. per viewport. When they are exploded they turn into an acad object that only exists at one size, one rotation, one location. Not pretty is normal.
