Referenced Viewports with Extra Large Selection Handle

Recommended Posts

I have a vwx file that has several referenced viewports, each ref VP looks at a single design layer in separate VW files.

In each of the separate vwx files have turned on all classes to ensure theres no stray objects above or below the envelope of the building.

When the ref VPs are selected the selection box is about 3 times bigger than the building it is showing, causing numerous overlaps.

Is there a way change this selection size?

Unable to crop the VPs due to the odd behaviour that occurs when viewing the VPs any any view other than top/plan.


Any ideas?

It's probably a callout or other object that is larger than it appears.

Are there any DWG imports in the external files ?

I experienced problems with Symbols coming from scaled Blocks where

physical and virtual (boundary boxes) dimensions would not quite fit.

With all problems that will follow (Fit View, ....)

I have to the design layer, chosen select all and not showing any circle centre points or other handles that far away from structure.

The first image below shows the VP selected.

The second shows all objects selected on the design layer, one layer on, all classes on.
