nanoCAD allows you to create layout viewports from the model space. You can create multiple layout viewports in the layout. Once you create the viewports, you can change their size, their properties and also scale and move them as needed.

The MAXACTVP system variable sets the maximum number of viewports (no more than 64 for each layout) the content of which is displayed at the same time. Viewports larger than the specified number will automatically turn off content display. When such a viewport is activated, the display of its content is turned on, but the display of another viewport’s content will be “dimmed”. The MAXACTVP variable has no effect on the number of viewports to be plotted.

It is important to create layout viewports on their own layer. When you are ready to plot, you can turn off the layer and plot the layout without plotting the boundaries of the layout viewports.
