Export VW viewports into CAD without display lock



I've only been using VectorWorks for 5 months and am having a slight problem exporting viewports.

I'm trying to export viewports in VectorWorks 12 into AutoCAD LT 2004 so that they operate as Autocad viewports would operate.

When exporting normal viewports from VW into AutoCAD I simple open the drawing in AutoCAD select the viewport boundary and then disable the display lock...but on some of my VW viewports I have set the pen style to 'none' so the viewports have no boundary. When in AutoCAD I then have no viewport boundary to select so I can disable the display lock.

Is there any way around this problem?

I just tried this (Pen Style= None) with Arch Desktop 2004. After import,in the AC Layers list there is a Viewport Crop layer that was turned off. When I click on the light bulb icon to turn it on, the viewport crop appears & can be selected.
