How can I move between  views from Front, SE, etc.  and keep the same position and size on the screen?

As far as I know, you can't. You can hold down the mouse wheel and do a dynamic rotation or use the Examine tool to rotate the view.

Standard views are zoom extents by definition, so the only way they can all be the same size is if the extents envelope has the same aspect ratio from each viewpoint, ie the file's entities extend to three corners of a cubic volume.  So, you can keep all views the same size by drawing everything within a wireframe cube, with no control over scale except by altering the size of the cube (but ensuring it's always bigger than the other objects ).  Other than that, you can create a template .tct that has named views established to you specification that you use instead of the standard ones.

Then I have something screwed up in my drawing or display setup. If I was getting a view controlled by "Zoom Extents" I would be very happy. What I am getting is a major shift in both size and location of the object when I switch views.

This is only a guess, but If your getting a lagre shift, its may be possible there is an object distant from your main object which may not be visible from front but when shifting views to say right will be displayed and hense viewing extents will alter the size of everything displayed.

As I say its just a guess.

Thanks. I'll check into that. I did use a sheet as "boiler plate" from another model. There was a tiny red square I was not able to select on and delete.

You were correct. I had some element in the drawing that was controlling the zoom extents.  I started with my new setup sheet and it is working as I would expect.

My thanks to all for your input(s).
