Creating a cropped viewport in 2019

Question

I recently upgraded to VW2019. I usually create my viewports by placing a 2D shape over the part of my my Design Layer I want to use and clicking Create Viewport. Click yes on the dialog and move on. I don't know if I accidentally clicked on the "Do Not Show Again" at some time or if the pre-cropped option was removed in 2019, but I am no longer able to do this. I don't get the dialog box and I can't figure out how to get it back.  I have clicked the "Reset Saved Settings" in the Session options and it has not helped.

Any Ideas? I use this all the time.

Thanks,

Christopher

If it is not asking, then you probably did check the Do Not Show Again.

 

Unfortunately, the only way to undo this is to undo ever Do Not Show Again option. But sometimes this is helpful as you might have checked this on something a long time ago and forgotten an option exists.

 

Vectorworks Preferences : Session Tab. Click the Reset Saved Settings button. Follow the prompts in the dialog box that opens.

Thanks for responding. I have done (3 times actually, out of desperation) and the dialog has not come back. Is it something they removed from 2019?

Have you double checked that the 2D shape is set to Screen Plane before trying to create the viewport?

It was set to Screen Aligned. That solved it. Thank you. Don't know how I did that.
