Unable to adjust viewport crop

Recommended Posts

In one of my files, I am unable to adjust the cropping of my viewports. The viewports are on a visible layer, but there is no box drawn around them (as it is in another file where I did viewports). Even though there is no box around it, it still lets me double click on it to edit the crop. However, once I get into edit mode, there is still no box and nothing to click on to edit it. What did I do wrong here? Even when I create new viewports, the same thing is happening.

(BTW, I'm using VW 2008)

The crop object is in a class that is not visible. Turn on all classes in the viewport and it will become visible. I put all my crop objects in the none class to avoid this.

Or you don't have a crop object. Try drawing a circle of rectangle and then exiting the crop. If it lets you exit then you had not previous crop object.

If it complains that you can only have a single crop object, then see Ray's comment above.

Okay great, thanks. I found that it was on the none class and I got it on. BUT, now everything in the none class is on and I don't want that. I tried to move the crop object to a different class and then turn the none class off but it still keeps disappearing. Now what?

Viewports have two places that the class needs to be visible. First it has to be visible in the overall drawing. Check the Navigation Palette and make sure the class is set to visible.

Second, select the viewport and click the Classes button. It will give you a display like the Nav Palette, but that only applies to that viewport. Make sure that the class is visible there also. If you created a new viewport for the crop object, by default it will be invisible in all viewport created before it.

Pat is correct.

I think you should consider not using the none class as much and have it always visible. Then you can use it for situations like this.
