Last year we released a preview beta soliciting feedback at the request of our friends in the AUGI Japan user group AUGI-JP. The AutoCAD/LT 2008 Export Layout to Model Space preview tool provided the capability to take a snapshot of a drawing layout to create a ready-to-use model space drawing. With the capability to export layout objects to model space, customers who have limited their use of layouts in order to exchange drawings with other CAD systems will be able to fully realize the benefits of AutoCAD 2008 annotation scaling, layers per viewport, and other enhanced layout features.
After around the world great feedback on the preview we included this ability into AutoCAD 2009.

Thank you for all the great feedback and to AUGI-JP for the initial request for the functionality that after release we found was a universal need.
