Today’s good question comes from Don. He asked how to change the zoom behavior in AutoCAD so that it immediately displays the new zoom area instead of “flying” into it.
The “flying” zoom was added to AutoCAD in AutoCAD 2006. It helps you visually maintain your orientation within a drawing as you zoom. However, it can sometimes slow you down because it takes time as it transitions from the original view to the new view. You can control the behavior of these flying zooms, officially called View Transitions, using the VTOPTIONS command, which displays the View Transitions dialog box. Specify the transition speed and performance or disable view transitions completely.
Thanks to Don for the good question!
