I totally agree. I am seriously considering abandoning 2010 and reverting to 2009 and this is one of the 2 or 3 big reasons why. (others being lack of Nvidia Performance driver, and goofy interface changes).

...and another vote from my side as well
Does actually ANYBODY from Autodesk read these threads and polls? It’s a bit annoying that such a fundamental and really time consuming feature can’t be fixed easily. If Autodesk is not willing to do so please let us know as well. Because then I need to recalculate all of my upcoming jobs and have to get prepared to explain to our clients why the same job now takes longer AND therefore costs more money…
I agree, it needs to go back to the way it was. For those who like it as it is (there are 2 of you, after all), just set 3 viewports to user, maximize the remaining vp, then you will have 2010 vp behaviour. There was no reason for AD to do this, as it wasn’t on any wish list, and AD heasn’t responded to explain the change, so it was just somebody’s missguided brainfart.
