Can't use object to create viewport in 2017

Lee Rose


OK, maybe it's me.  I haven't been doing much with 2017.  Still working w/2016.   Went to create a viewport from an object but the option is not there.   When choosing "Create Viewport" it doesn't ask me about using the selected object.  I can't find anywhere to reset that request.   Any ideas?

Are you trying to create a viewport to reference a file? If so make sure the viewport is set to be placed on a design layer (i.e. Create on Layer should be used to select an existing design layer or create a new design layer). Otherwise you cannot select a source.


If you select Sheet layer as the layer to place the viewport on, the select source option will not be available. For creating the viewport reference to a file the object does not necessarily have to be on a screen plane (at least not in VW2018)
