PowerSwitcher switches viewports while remembering previous viewport's position/pan and zoom data. No more panning/zooming after switching through the various different viewports, as PowerSwitcher stores and recalls all that info for you. Comes with addional features like, cycling views through scene cameras/light views per keypress etc.

Features new in Release Version 1.0:

Okay - so there's already a shortcut to maximize the active viewport. But not to maximize whatever viewport happens to be under the mouse...at least not until now! Migratory Maya users should find this one comforting.

Aligns the viewport to the selected face. Thanks to Carl-Mikael Lagnecrantz for some code inspiration.

Select an editable poly object, select a face, run the script. Now you have a new view perpendicular to that face.

This script lets you grab the currently active Viewport and save the images. You can set a timer to grab sequences - or turn on AutoGrab - which will grab the viewport every time you change something.

Copy Viewport to Clipboard

Viewport BG Switcher

A little interface for loading images and setting them as viewport backgrounds. Hit 'Load' to add images - and 'Remove' to remove them. 'Apply' sets an image as the viewport background - 'View' lets you view the image - and 'Dialog' brings up the max background dialog. The list of images does not save with the scene in max7 unfortunately.
