Today I noticed that one of drawing I opened automatically zoomed the viewport to extents when double clicking in the viewport. This is extremely annoying, particularly if I wanted to pan after setting the scale.
The solution is that a variable was set wrong.
In order to fix this it is fairly simple (though if you have many viewports time consuming – see here for a LISP that might help with many viewports).
- First lock the viewport using properties
- Then double click in viewport
- Then type UCSFOLLOW
- Set UCSFOLLOW to 0
- Click back to paperspace
- Unlock viewport
