Select outer viewport...

One of the commands in the Select menu of the Picture window.


To determine where your next drawing will occur.

The viewport

The "viewport" is the part of the Picture window where your next drawing will occur. Its margins are pink.

The outer viewport includes the margins, the inner viewport does not (see Select inner viewport...).

Normally, you select the viewport by dragging your mouse across the Picture window. However, you would use this explicit command:

• from a script;
• if you want a viewport that cannot be expressed in halves of an inch.
