Recommended By:  Brad Sikes with Sikesdesign

If you need to show an enlarged or more detailed view of an area within your plan, it's important to maintain that area's context in relation to the plan as a whole. In this Power Tip, we'll show you how to use our New Viewport tool freeze, fade, and otherwise manipulate linework so you can provide context while still keeping the focus on the design.
