Appendix A: The Bottom Line > Chapter 16 : Laying Out Your Printer Output

Chapter 16: Laying Out Your Printer Output

Understand Model Space and Paper Space. AutoCAD offers two viewing modes for viewing and printing your drawings. Model Space is where you do most of your work; it's the view you see when you create a new file. Layouts, also called Paper Space, are views that let you arrange the layout of your drawing, similar to the way you would in a page-layout program.

Master It What are two ways of moving from Model Space to Paper Space?
Solution You can use the Quick View Layouts tool in the status bar to display the Model and Layout preview panels, or you can use the Model and Layout tabs in the lower-left corner of the drawing area.

Work with Paper Space viewports. While in Paper Space, you can create views in your drawing using viewports. You can have several viewports, each showing a different part of your drawing.
