Hi Jenny ,
I have been caught few times in odd situation with layout viewports. I zoomed in unlocked layout viewport while being with cursor in layout, then double clicked in viewport, and I have been caught in viewport without a possibility to zoom out in order to see whole viewport. In autocad this sort of situation is easily avoided with padlock icon that locks viewport, but in zwcad I didn't found similar option.

Have You any ideas on this?

btw. I found padlock feature far better than locking viewport in options.

Regards, Damjan

hi Damjan, I suggest you to use Maximize Viewport feature, you can max viewport by following way:
In layout space, click the button Maximize Viewport from the status bar, then you can edit object freely like in the model space, you can zoom in or out to modify small detail, pan to anywhere, after editing finish, click the button again, the objects within viewport stay in the same position as before.

You can also have vp max by double clicking the border of viewport object.


Let's take a look at the video tutorial about ZWCAD+ VPMAX:
