Option "Open Active View Port" - What for?

Post by Peter » 25 Oct 2010, 19:31

Version 7.3.01 has a new option "Open Active View Port".

a) What is it good for?

b) There is only a semi-german translation. Maybe better: "Aktives Ansichtsfenster öffnen"

Hello Peter,
"Open Active ViewPort" option specifies if drawing will be displayed with ViewPort stored in file. If this option is off then drawing will be displayed fitted to its extents. We will consider b question as well as other translation-related questions.

Is it really a "View Port" or the "current view"?

Hello Peter.
You can use "current view" term as well as "Active ViewPort". ViewPort is an entity that conains the data for visualization and Active ViewPort contains data for current view.

In my translation I used now "use saved view instead of 'Zoom extents"
