Hi Andrew
when I set up my default choice of viewports - say ‘Two vertical’, they do not retain either the initial starting position or indeed the position I leave them in when I reopen a drawing. On opening a new/previous drawing - always one of the viewports is at ‘almost’ full extents!
I then have to manually re-position my viewports to suit.

Is this normal behavior happening here?
It would be good if a drawing opened with persistent viewport positions held, possibly this option could be added to the ‘Layout’ Viewports dialog window?

*Out of interest, when you introduce an isometric grid in the future - will it be possible to set up a ‘Three:Right’ layout view for example and have all three viewports showing different planes - Top, Front and South East?



This task depends upon

Actually thinking about it properly - I suppose to have Top, Front and SE views is more for 3d modelling - isn`t it!

I guess what I`m after is to be able to work with the isometric grid in three viewports but to be able to work in three different planes independently in each one.
Not sure whether this is possible?

I hope this makes sense!

I can report that now in QCAD 3 final viewports retain their position after opening/closing!

Viewports are indeed retaining their default positions when opening/closing but not any user defined positions!
