When working on large drawings in VeSys Design or Harness it is often necessary to move entities from one side of the drawing to the other, this can be time consuming if you have to keep panning back and forth zooming in and out.  Using the AutoCAD vports command (can be typed at the command line) you can create a split screen or even several windows all of which are views of the same drawing, this enables you to have the current location of the entity you are moving as well as the destinitation location of where you want to move the entitiy to.



I have already posted my custom menu's to this forum (see link below), these menu's have a dedicated toolbar with icons for the vports functionality.
