    FYI, I teach to place the viewports on a special layer “Vports” in Yellow, set to “No-Plot”. DefPints works the same, but it’s days might be numbered. Might not happen soon, but DefPoints might go away in later Releases. Furthermore, you have to place your first dimension to create the DefPoints layer.
