Is it just me or is Auto zoom always on regardless of the checkbox in the Display box of the Results Tab of clash detection?

Hello. I took a look at the Auto Zoom feature in clash detective. I believe the issue is a combination of the various settings. When you have “Save viewpoint” checked, it holds the various zoomed viewpoints in memory, and when you uncheck “Auto Zoom” it does not simply reset, it has already saved the viewpoints to your clashes.


If the “Auto Zoom” and save viewpoint functions are turned off prior to running your report, the functionality works as expected. I made a brief video for you in this regard, that may help.


I ran the report with Zoom checked, and after unchecked the Zoom function, manually adjusted my viewpoint, cleared the report and reran. The model help the viewpoint and allowed me to scroll through my clashes.
