Today, in a Very Special Episode of “CAD Monkey in the Cubicle Jungle,” CAD Monkey comes to terms with her terrible secret: she has gone retarded when it comes to the one of the simplest aspects of AutoCAD usage. She does not know how to create a viewport in paperspace. (For all you non-AutoCAD users, this is akin to forgetting how to read!)
[tries to select existing viewport and move the contents, fails] Dangit! How the hell do I make a new one? I don’t know how! I. don’t. know. how!
[e-mails the calvary]
CAD Monkey: This is a sad, sad thing to admit, but I've gone completely retarded over the last 10 months. I honestly don't know how to create a viewport in AutoCAD paperspace. At Firm 2, they had a custom menu for it, and at El Hellhole, I didn't work on any project long enough to have to do it.
Liz: Do you need some assistance??
CAD Monkey: Gawd, yes. I'm a window licker. "0" is the current layer, and I type in MVIEW, right? I think that's got it.
This is just scary. How could I forget something like this? It is testament to the fact that if you don’t use something often enough, it leaks out through your ears. First, I lost any ability to use MicroStation, now I’m losing AutoCAD capabilities.
