Default UI Menu: View/Viewports/Model Space(Floating), Modify/Model Space(Floating)

Ribbon UI Menu:


Enables you to use Model Space tools within a viewport in Paper Space. This is useful for making minor adjustments to your model within Paper Space, without having to switch to Model Space. Any substantial changes, however, should be done in Model Space.

  1. Select the viewport you want to use to edit the model.
  2. Select Model Space (Floating).
  3. The viewport is outlined in bold. You can now make minor edits using most of the Model Space tools.
  4. Click outside the viewport to finish editing and return to Paper Space.

Warning: If you rotate the view in a floating viewport, the view will not return to its original position when you return to Paper Space.
