Need to pan your view within a viewport a specific distance?
- Double click the viewport to activate it
- -P <enter> to start the pan command in the command line
- Pick a point inside of the viewport to specify the base point
- Move the cursor in the desired direction of the pan (use ortho)
- Enter the specific distance and hit <enter>
Thanks to Garreth for the tip!!!

I USED to do this all the time, in earlier versions of ACAD now when I hit pan I just get a hand cursor that I can drag the view with, but cannot pick a point or access other variables that usedto be there. What’s up?
thanks for the help
Are you using the minus sign in front of the command? -PAN
It works perfect. Thanks for the tip and for the – detail it got me as well. I guess sometime I look but don’t see!
Thanks! Very helpful indeed =)
also you can actually move all directions at the same time
3) instead of specifiing the second point just click enter
Do you know how to take as second point a reference point or snap from the very viewport?
