viewport crop editing

Recommended Posts

How do you edit a viewport crop?

We have set the viewport box on the sheet layer so that it is invisible (ie no line), however we are experiencing great difficulties in trying to subsequently edit the shape/scale etc of the viewport in the sheet layer.

When I make one on my 12.5.3 version, it seems to work - I can double click on the area of the screen where the line would be, and I get the box where you choose how you want to edit (annotations/crop etc) and then I can still change the properties of the viewport. However my colleague can't make this work on her version of the same program at all - she can get as far as the editing choice box, and it seems to work but then she can't actually edit anything - she can't snap onto the viewport frame to change it's shape or anything.

Can anyone help? It's driving her (and consequently the rest of the office!) mad!

All ideas will be much appreciated, thank you!

1) Enter the "Edit Crop" mode in the VP; 2) Use "Select All" [as there is only one cropping object allowed, this will select it and only it]; 3) Temporarily change the line line weight to something other than zero/white; 4) Edit as desired; 5) Change line weight back to zero; 6) Exit Crop Edit...

Then there's the infamous "donut crop" - haven't quite found a use for it but hey...
