How to reduce the effort to organize a view in layout ( offset edge)

Anonymous

Dear Forum Member, Moderator & Viewers
Today I want to discuss with an issue I am facing from the beginning.
I think it's a common issue.
When we drag and drop a view in the layout it takes a larger area than the main drawings. (see Fig-1) Sometimes it takes a bigger area than the attached one. So it takes extra time & effort for these processes

- offset the edges and
- Drag the elements
-Move the sub-elements

I am expecting a solution/suggestion/idea to avoid/ above procedures.
1. It's really time-consuming. Is there any easy way to compose the drawing in the layout?
2. I want to fix the extra area (fig-1) within the view map. Is it possible?

use fit to frame.

set a drawing up the way you want it with fit to frame on
save it as a favorite and you can simply apply the favorite
to any newly placed layout.

Dear David,
Thanks for this life-saving solution. Although it's an easy solution I was totally unaware of it. One more thing to know. After drag & drop a view I still need to take time to apply the favorite. Can I make this favorite default?
I mean, Are there any way thus my view will automatically take this settings/favorite.
Thanks again.

Apply the favourite before you place a drawing.
Like any other tool, the current tool settings are what will be used when you next use the tool.
So apply the favourite to set the defaults.
Or you can ALT click (pick up parameters) any existing drawing to set the tool defaults to the same as that placed drawing.
