Named views resets unwanted


We work with named views as the orientation are different than the standard views.
When we -import something, rhino will go true all the views and set them back to standard views.
The same will happen when i -insert with a button.(macro below) But will not happen when i -insert manual.


Company views:
Perspective / Aft view / SB View / Top

Standard views:
Perspective / Top / Front / Left

This problem does not happen in Rhino 5.
Can somebody help me to fix this problem?

Hi Nick - I guess this is with dwg and dxf files only, correct? I think that is the one plug-in that monkeys with the views.

For now, I suggest a workaround:
Make a template file if you do not have one with your views - presumably you do.
Add a macro to your process:
_-ReadViewportsFromFile "Full path to template inside double-quotes"

Not ideal but it may get you going for now.


Hi Pascal,
Thanx for the replay,
Yes this is happening with DWG files.
The work around will work for now. (if it works)
Maybe because it is almost weekend. I get a unknow command.


Hi Nick - make sure to use the dash in front of the ReadViewportsFromFile command:

-_ReadViewportsFromFile "C:\Users\pascal\Desktop\Junk.3dm"


It worked.

i forgot to put 2 “pause” in the macro.

Thanx a lot. And have a good weekend
