Re: Help with viewports

How are you "switching back to the main layout"? The commands MS and PS should take you to model space (inside the viewport) and out to paper space
(Layout), respectively. If this doesn't work, then perhaps the viewport is Locked, in which case you can use the MVIEW command to unlock it. ___

Type MS <enter> or double-click inside the viewport to make it active. ___

Double click won't help either.

What about MS <enter> ? It sounds more an more like you've somehow locked the viewport. ___

Dont know if this would help, while in model space you use Ctrl-R to toggle between viewports

Thanks for the reply.
The viewport is not locked.
I've got to be missing something real basic.

Do you maybe have one more viewport than you think? Maybe you think you're going into one, but actually going into a different one, giving the appearance of the viewport not actually moving.
It's quite easy to accidently duplicate objects by grip editing, if you're not paying full attention to what keystrokes you're making.
