anyone else had issues with polygon viewports in autocad lt 2012?
when viewing a layout tab with a polygon viewport in it, my screen only shows the last polygon viewport created, then when you switch tabs or go back to paper space, it still only show the image on the screen where the polygon viewport was located.
I have looked for settings & done web searches on this issue & nothing comes up
the issue only seems to be in autocad lt 2012 as i can go back a version and remove the polygon viewport.
This may or may not be relevant, but if you have a lot of viewports in this drawing check out the variable MAXACTVP
If thie drawing is behaving correctly in an earlier version though then this is possibly not your problem
ok worked out where me issue lies, but it creates its on issue as i don't think may people are running autocad the way I'm running it.
I'm running AutoCAD on windows 7 on a Mac using VMware. (this is so i can use our work printers)
The issue is possible to do with my video card, but it only pops up when using polygon viewports. attaching the cad file will not help as it works fine on windows machine, but not on a mac run windows machine.
just to make it clear, when using ploygon viewports my screen shows up fun & i'm unable to see anything on the screen excpet where the polygon viewport is, zoom extents just moves the view. regen & redraw don't work.
