Arc/Curve display

In much earlier version of MSCAD there was a setting for the quality (in terms of segments) of arcs and curves in the drawing. Where is that control hiding?

Printing colors & lineweights

I replaced a hard drive and reinstalled MSCAD 2008. I have assigned my ctb file and toggled on the lightweight box but it does not print either correctly.
I set up the program so infrequently. I know I'm missing something simple. Please help.

Vehicle turning radius template

Is there a routine imbedded anywhere in MS Cad that provides information turning radius templates for various vehicles, to assist in parking lot and other access design issues?

Thanks Ian. The line spacing is relatively good, it is the symbol size that proportion is lost. The circle and/or square do not proportion as they did in 2004.
I'm not the greatest CAD guy, and I've been scratching my head for a while trying to find what once was a very simple control.

Linetypes 2004 to 2005 & 2008

There was a linetype scale factor under Draw Modes in the Settings pick box of the snaps toolbar. Where did this go?
I relied on that option to scale the fenceline linetypes and others.
I'm not having any luck in 2005 & 2008 with scaling linetypes

Plotter configuration

I'm running a HP 450C plotter and I cannot find a way to have the configuration file default to architectural paper sizes.
It seems minor, but extra key strokes are time.
Any help?

Word wrap in a drawing

Is it possible to create a window with an irregular polyline or some other means that will act as a margin line so that a long document (legal description) can be imported from "Word" or any word processing program and have the word wrap function work?

It was buried under another toolbox. It was checked as open on the toolbar dropdown, but was buried under another toolbar.
