- I think you talk about viewing multiple sections of a drawing,
each section of the drawing being displayed in there own
window, with there own settings (zoom, etc.)
- LibreCAD do not support such "Viewport" functionality.
Sort of.... I think this is so basic to CAD that I am thinking it MUST be in libreCAD somewhere. Let's say one has a drawing of a part that is 1/4 inch wide and then wants to print the drawing on an 8.5x11 sheet with border and title block. Well there is a size mismatch here.
I am trying to find this functionality and I think the key might be to look at "paper space" vs. "model space" which I see mentioned in the forums but haven't found in the actual program yet...
