coordinate file not matching drawing file

Post by Stephen_P » Fri Apr 29, 2011 7:29 am

I created a temporary file called tempa and imported points and saved it. then I saved it to another name called tempb and scaled tempb to feet. then I opened tempa and the display were all right but the coordinates all wrong in feet. I am using MSCAD 2010 and never met this problem before.

If your Point Protection was ON the points would not have scaled. All the line work would have.

To fix, turn off point protection and scale the points.

See Help desk if you need more help.

Hope this helps.

Thanks rwhatman. My question is the scaling operation is on drawing tempb, but apparently for some reasons drawing tempa was touched.
