When you first create
the viewport, it displays the entire map. You can zoom in to display
a detail for this map tile instead.
- The layout tab with the new viewport
you created in the previous
exercise should still be displayed. If
not, reopen it.
- Double-click inside the new viewport.
- Use any AutoCAD Map 3D zoom and pan commands
to display the area of interest for this map tile.
a real-world example, your map might have many layers, and the inset
be too crowded with data to be very helpful. You can use the AutoCAD layfrz
to delete undesired layers and simplify the inset. See the AutoCAD
Help for more details.
Where you are now
You created an inset
on one map tile and used it to display a close-up view of a detail
of the map.
