Zoom Extents not working right
Read 417 times

I must have inadvertently changed something because, on some drawings, when I try to use Zoom Extents by any means (click mouse wheel, hot key, or tool bar) the drawing doesn't fill up the screen and is off to one side.  It works normally on new drawings but on drawings I created by deleting the content and renaming the file this problem seems to follow that path.  I must have altered something by accident and it carried through to all subsequent drawings that came from that first drawing.  Any ideas?  Thanks.  John K.

Maybe there are some small Object(s) on the other side ??
Ctrl + A to Select all, then press Shifth and Select what you want to keep with an selection window, that will un select it, then hit delete button for take away whats left if there are something.

In cases like this, it's usually only one or two objects that have been sent far away, most often because you picked up an object, moved it and set it down without afixing it to a workplane.

Try different views (especially if you've named them) and see which takes up the least amount of space on your screen.  From your description, you can see the cluster of objects that are supposed to be close together, so this shouldn't be too difficult.

Once you've determined which view to use, try a Sweep Select of the area that does not include the cluster of objects you want (or Select All and De-Select as Torfinn described).  From here, you could  zoom into the corners of the selected area to see what's there (you could also bring up the Selection Info palette to see a list) or you could just move these objects much closer to the cluster (the advantage being that you won't have to draw them again).

Just an idea. Had that too lately. It was the lights that disturbed.

Very low knowledge of English - I ask for indulgence - Thanks

I have this problem too but only in paper space (so not lights)
Workaround is full view (shift + backspace)
