The NewViewport command creates a new viewport.
The following settings match the currently active viewport: snap spacing, grid spacing, major grid line interval, grid extents, grid visibility, grid axes visibility, and world axes icon visibility.
The NewFloatingViewport command creates a new viewport that can be located outside the bounds of the main Rhino application window.
This allows floating a viewport and dragging it on to another monitor.
The ToggleFloatingViewport command changes the floating viewport back into the normal Rhino viewport located inside the Rhino application window.
Floating viewport settings are not saved in the model from one editing session to the next. Closing the model will reset all viewports back to normal Rhino viewports.
You can also copy an existing viewport to a floating viewport with drag and drop.
Sets the projection and view for the viewport.
Uses the same projection as the currently active viewport.
Link new viewport to named view
Links the viewport to the Named View so that changes to the viewport update the named view automatically.
Any named view widget displaying the view is also updated, and changes to the named view via the widget are reflected in the floating viewport.
To copy a viewport by dragging
|1.|| Click and drag a viewport title outside the viewport docking area.
A preview of the viewport appears.
|2.||Release the mouse button to drop the viewport copy.|
The ToggleFloatingViewport command toggles the Rhino viewport type between a normal viewport docked and a floating viewport.
|●||Floating viewports can be located outside the bounds of the main Rhino application window.|
|●||This command can be used on model viewports and on Layout viewports.|
|●||When used on a layout viewport, all layout viewports in the model use the floating viewport window.|
|●||Floating viewports work best with multiple monitors.|
|●||Floating viewport settings are not saved in the model from one editing session to the next. Closing the model will reset all viewports back to normal Rhino viewports.|
The 4View command sets up a four-viewport workspace with parallel world top, world front, and world right views, and a world perspective view.
If new viewports are created, the following settings match the currently active viewport: snap spacing, grid spacing, major grid line interval, grid extents, grid visibility, grid axes visibility, and world axes icon visibility.
The 4View command can operate in two different ways:
|●||When views are not in default layout:|
|If four views with the names Top, Front, Right, and Perspective are not located or sized in their default position, all four views are reset to their typical layout. The orientation and construction plane for existing views are not modified.|
|●||When views are in their default layout:|
|If four views with the names Top, Front, Right, and Perspective are located and sized to their default layout, the orientation and construction planes are reset their default world orientations.|
|Using the command twice in sequence bring all viewport sizes and orientation and their construction planes back to the default locations.|
The 3View command sets up a three-viewport workspace with parallel world top and world front views and a world perspective view.
Note: If new viewports are created, the following settings match the currently active viewport: snap spacing, grid spacing, major grid line interval, grid extents, grid visibility, grid axes visibility, and world axes icon visibility.
The ReadViewportsFromFile command sets the viewport layout in the current model to match the layout in another Rhino model.
Select the file to read viewports from.
The viewport layout and views are changed to match the selected Rhino file.
The CloseViewport command closes the active viewport.
The ViewportTabs command displays a tab control UI along the viewport edge.
Viewport tabs are useful for managing multiple-page layout style viewports along with standard modeling viewports.
A tab for each viewport or page layout viewport displays.
Click the tab for options
Double-click a tab to rename a viewport.
Right-click a tab to display a context menu for managing viewports.
To set the default state at startup, see: Options > Appearance > Viewport tabs at start.
Scroll the mouse wheel when it is over the tabs to cycle through the tabs.
Shows, hides, or toggles the viewport tab visibility.
Sets the location of the viewport tabs relative to the Rhino window.
Displays one tab for each model viewport.
Combines all model tabs into one tab. This is useful when working on layout viewports.
