Hi All, I am fresh to AutoCAD and whenever I do some editings and next time I open the file, it will open the file where I left. I would like to set the initial view cad, so that whenever the files open, it will open the pre-defined view. Please advice on how to set the initial view in AutoCAD. Thanks
