I have a project that requires me to export all layers as the exact same view, rotation, and zoom.

Problem one: there is no png produced if I try to export that way so using jpg, then having to edit jpg in gimp.

Problem two: I need to be able to return to the exact zoom, rotation, location and view of drawing. I have not figured a way to do that so far. Help please?

Ea product has 32 layers that go into a "paperdoll" product builder on website. I have dozens of different products each with same number of layers. It can be a real challenge to get different products view, size, rotation, and zoom perfect.

Hello,
Here are my tricks to get pictures :
1 : I use screen grab of Phong with edge... It is good enough for me with a large display.
2 : You can create new view in the "view" menu to save view angle. For zooming, make a large sphere bigger than your biggest object, zoom all, and hide the sphere before picture.
Workarounds...

I did a quick check regarding exporting PNG images from drawings and all seemed ok. What version of the product and OS are you using?

View properties gives the technical definition of what's on screen. The box has provision to name it uniquely there and you recall it from View:User view. You can physically scale views in sheet layer viewports if needed.
