I'll ask this in the hope that I get a quick answer. We all know what acad help is like....i've spent the last 10 minutes trying to find the answer there.

Is it possible to convert a rectangular viewport to a polygonal viewport? If so, how?

Thanks in advance.

I'm just in a lazy mood today, and don't feel like drawing a polygonal viewport to replace a rectangular viewport and setting it all up.  :evil:

*blows whistle*  TIME OUT!!  You don't need LSP to do this.

All you have to do is create a pline in the shape of the viewport you want, then click on the existing viewport, right-click, select CLIP VIEWPORT then select the pline you just drew.  The new polygonal viewport will maintain the same layer settings.


Pretty simple...unless I'm missing something.   :?
...my question is what command does this run?
