If you need to change the magnification then marque select the layout box and use the upper edit handle.

 

There is a much more complicated method to make it work the way it did by default several version back just by pulling on a corner.

Is that the method you are after like other programs ?

The marquee select works great.  This is probly not exact as it should be.  where is the default setting for size of image at layout?  is this in the plan side or layout side?  

 

Not really sure there is a default.  It is loosely based on the "Current Screen" magnification and cropping if you use that setting when sending to layout.  There is more control with sending an image rather than a live view but I don't know who does that now that we have live views.

 

The old method of dragging a corner is now:

 

Anchor the fixed corner and place a temporary point there and then make sure "Rotate/Resize about Current Point" is turned on and then finally hold your X key down and grab the opposite corner to resize.....    Whew....   Then don't forget to delete the temporary point.

      my address has changed and I want to update the existing layout sheets with a new template. How do I go about doing so?  Anybody got any ideas of how to make this change.

      Have some pre-set cameras in my template for basic b/w exterior linework views that then sync to the .layout file cover sheet  - which is great in theory but my cameras don't seem to want to behave:
       

       
      Of course sending to layout as an 'image' solves this - but I wonder why the cropping changes when using the live camera?
       
      I tried a second camera view and it seemed to work more closely to how you would expect. Nearly identical cropping on these two:

      Hello,
       
      I am having issues with using the "active views" on Sheet Layouts. I just recently found this and thought it would save me a lot of time.
       
      What I'm having an issue with:
      1. It seems to be very slow, but I'm not sure if that's because of the file size? Or because I know have a bunch of Active Views for both Exterior and Interior 3D views?
      2. After sending an active view to the layout sheet, It works great until I "File Save as" a new file (when I have to make changes to a design). When I go to "Relink File" and "Update View", it re sizes the image back to the original size, so I then have to resize / zoom the image back in large to fit onto the Layout.
       
      Any ideas on how to keep the active image resized and only have to relink / update the view?
       
      I have attached some Images to help explain.
       
      thanks in advance,
      Angela

      I am doing a remodel and have created a separate existing building file and am using it as an underlay to show where walls are being removed: 
      BUT, when I export the views to layout, they all default to the last view I export. Here I export the first floor:

      So far so good. Here are the settings:

      Then it all goes awry. This is what happens when I export the second floor:

      And now the third...

      This only happens with this one plan. Could using the plan reference be messing things up? Has anyone seen this before?

      How can I speed up layout? Seems ridiculous that moving some text WITHIN LAYOUT and not even touching my synced viewports has such an awful lag time. I have a fast computer and the modeling is plenty smooth. I also have used lots of other cad software and even old, clunky dried-up CAD software doesn't have the terrible lag that working in Layout has. 
       
      I've devised ways around it - trying to do everything in my model and nothing or as little as possible in Layout - but this is just bad and seems unnecessary. What is going on within the code when moving text like this takes a few seconds?
       
      Is this common or am I an outlier? I've posted a video of the lag time here - can anybody else corroborate this lag? Is it time for a (nother) computer upgrade, or will even DeepBlue have a similar lag time? Is it some secret setting within chief that is slowing me down like this?
