i could possibly be two things:
1. if you go to tools>>options>> system options>> drawings and ensure the below is ticked.
2. open a blank drawing go to the view layout tab and click model view:
then make sure " start command when creating new drawing is unticked.
cancel and close the drawing and retest the behaviour.
Let me know if that helps
Just checked, unfortunately both settings were already set at the correct value.
Thanks for trying,
The "what we want" is what you get from the "View palette" tab accessed from the right side of your drawing format.
The "what we get" is the "view orientation" accessed by hitting the spacebar and selecting the "pin" - upper right of tab depending on whether you want it to stay on or not.
