MSCAD 2009 opening DWG's from ACAD

Postby Survey Chad » Mon Jan 05, 2009 1:57 pm

Hello,
I am a new MSCAD user
I have installed the MSCAD 2009 CD.
When I open ACAD drawings from this company I believe is on subscription, the drawings open but not to scale. The dwgs were drawn in State Plane but MSCAD sees the drawing as about 2 feet square.
Is this something that needs a fix? or is it me?
Thanks,
Chad

We would need to examine the DWG to see if it is something they have done, you have done or we are doing.

I would suggest you go to our helpdesk and open a support ticket - then email us the drawing to examine.

A thought - it may very well be that you are looking at a Layout Tab rather than the Model tab.

paperspace white background / model space black possible?

Postby Survey Chad » Sun Jan 11, 2009 10:38 am

Hello,
I was looking at paperspace.
When I opened the dwg it had a white background for model space and paperspace.
I set to model space and set background to black. I falsely assumed that paperspace would stay white.
I have not responded for a few days because I have been trying to get model space to be black and paperspace white, but I do not see how to do that.
In MS can I have a black model space with a white paperspace? If so, how do I do that? I cannot find it.
Thanks,
Chad

Screen color is set for the program, not the individual model/paper space screens.
