Hidden viewport perimeters in AutoCAD 2004

I’m using AutoCAD 2004 in Windows XP.  

I’m trying to piece together views in paperspace.  I want to hide the perimeters of the ports.  I have tried changing all the attributes of the viewport I can find, but that rectangle is still there on my plot.  How can I make these perimeters despair?
Thank You,
Jesse

they easiest way in my opinion is to put the viewports on the defpoints (non printing layer) layer or their own viewports layer then make that specific layer no plot or turn it off. that way you can still select your viewports easily but they wont print.

hope that helps

I want to print what is inside the window, but not the frame of the window...

as long as the objects in the window (model space) are on a plottable layers everything should print except the viewport if you put the vp on its own no plot layer, defpoints is a good one and its more than likely already in the dwg. did you try it?

glad to shed some light on the subject ;). I've been playing with autcad for about 10 yrs now, viewports and paperspace have come a long way. I'm a big fan of making vp's out of closed irregular shaped objects, and circles.
