Layout View Architectural Scales

Post by John Lunn » Mon Oct 06, 2008 12:51 pm

Hello,

I am trying to use layout view in order to create an imperial plan at a scale of 1/8"=1' and I seem to be having problems in getting the correct scale when using the scale layout viewport command. I tried to use the zoom command instead but to no avail.

Any Ideas?

I would set the scale to 1 inch = 96.00 feet.

I had tried that already, it zooms the drawing out further than what it should be at a 1/8"=1' scale.

Are the units set to Architectural, Fractional, Decimal or what?
We assume it is always set to Decimal. If it is set to something else then you may need to scale the drawing so that it matches decimal units for measurements.

The drawing is still set up in a decimal system.

Not much else I can suggest without seeing it.
Please go to our helpdesk and enter a support ticket. Please attach the drawing in question, with any additional details we would need.
This is assuming you have a current support maintenance contract, so we can address the ticket.
