AutoCAD How to Cycle or Switch Viewports

Autocad Viewport Cycle SwitchHey Everybody, Brandon here back with another Autocad Tutorial video! Todays video is the 3rd 2 minute: Tip, Trick or Tutorial video and in them I cover a basic command, tip or trick that will help make you a better drafter in ~2 minutes. This way you can learn something new, and not have to spend a lot of time learning it. (Let me know what you think of them in the comments, and please feel free to request new ones!)

So, let’s get to it: In this video I go over how to cycle through viewports in autocad without clicking around or moving anything around like the extents of your viewport. It’s just a simple key combination and it lets you switch between multiple viewports, quickly and easily.  This is an easy way to save the frustration of not being able to select a viewport when you have more than one and also helps make you faster and more productive when you are working/switching between viewports on a daily basis. In the video I also go over a bonus tip on how to move objects, text or linework from paper (layout) space to model space and vice-versa!

Chers out the new video below:

As always, thank you so much for reading/watching, and don’t forget to let me know what tip, trick or tutorial you’d like to see next in the comments.
Cheers and happy drafting!
