I'll test your suggestion. I had a suspicion it might be the length of the file path/name.
In the meantime, I could use a bit more guidance as to what we should be expecting.
Saving a view is possible, correct? Does the saved view include information we might have drafted beyond the limits of the view boundary? If so, what dictates the view boundary? Saving a position on the screen as a view or setting the view boundary on a layout? In both cases, we might prefer if the exported file does not include the information beyond the limits of the view. Is this possible, or is the entire 'model space' shown regardless of how the view is saved or cropped?
Who cares? We often draft beyond the 'view boundary' or 'paper space' and would prefer those 'notes' or drawings are not shared in the export since they might be a work in progress.
The desire for a 'clean' drawing with nothing outside the 'view boundary' is what is driving our efforts here.
Also, are all drawings saved to the same origin regardless of view or layout export? One of our consultants had complained that our plans were each at random locations in 'model space'.
