Viewport overlap..

I have a couple viewports on my drawing (in paperspace), one viewport corner is overlapping another viewport, and part of my object in the overlapped view is being covered up with white space.  All my VP's are turned off (not visible), and this wasn't happening earlier today.. I must have accidently done something?  Any thoughts?

Seems to me as if you moved one of the Viewports in front of the other (could have been done by accidentally pressing a hot key while one was selected).  Play around with the Alignment sub-commands under the Format menu.

That sounds like it might work, but when I select align (under format) I'm unable to select any of the options (except "along line").. In other words they're greyed out.  Any way to make it so I can select them?

I got it!  I selected "bring to front" from the align tool bar.

Thx Jeff!

Another way to avoid the "overlap issue" is to draw a closed polyline/circle over what you want to show in your Viewport (while avoiding the other VP's), then use "Workspace / Update Viewport Boundary".
