AutoCAD 2013: Viewport Configuration Preview

This is a great improvement in AutoCAD 2013. Located in the new panel called “Model Viewports” on the View tab of the ribbon is the normal dropdown list but the improvement is that now you have a preview of how the viewports will be arranged.

The New panel called : “Model Viewports” is great because it makes it clear that the viewport tools located in this panel apply to model space.

    i think is a good feature, but what happen to the button to actually create a new viewport on a layout? the only way that I am able to do it now as use the VIEWPORTS command or enable the menu bar and then go to view -> viewports -> new viewports…
    both of these ways prompt me to popup, where i have options. I just dont know what happened to the simpler way to create a normal, viewport of the model space w/o asking me anything.
