Viewing your drawing - Changing the magnification of your drawing

Aereal view

In a large drawing, you can pan and zoom quickly in a window that can display the whole drawing.

You can use the Aerial View window to change the view in your current viewport quickly. If you keep the Aerial View window open as you work, you can zoom and pan without interrupting your current command. You can also specify a new view without having to choose a menu option or enter a command.

Within the Aerial View window is a view box, a heavy rectangle that displays the boundary of the view in your current viewport. You can change the view in the drawing by changing the view box in the Aerial View window.

To use aereal view
  1. Do one of the following:
  2. Choose View > Aereal view
  3. Type dsviewer and then press Enter.
  4. All pan and zoom operations are performed by left-clicking: to zoom in to the drawing, make the view box smaller. To zoom out of the drawing, make the view box larger.
  5. Right-click to end a pan or zoom operation.
  6. The command has the following options:
  7. Auto Viewport: Displays the model space view of the current viewport automatically when multiple viewports are displayed. When Auto Viewport is off, the Aerial View window is not updated to match the current viewport.
  8. Dynamic Update: Updates the Aerial View window while you edit the drawing. When Dynamic Update is off, the Aerial View window is not updated until you click in the Aerial View window.
  9. Realtime Zoom: Updates the drawing area in real time when you zoom using the Aerial View window.
