View Full Version : Copying from Paperspace to Modelspace

17th May 2005, 06:57 pm
In AC 2005 LT, I'm drawing floorplans of my house and barn. I set up layouts at 1/4"=1'-0" scale for the first and second floor electrical drawings for both buildings and populated them with all my outlets, switches, etc.

Now I've decided it looks better at 3/16"=1'-0" scale. I changed the scale of the viewports and everything is hunky-dory, except for one floor. On this floor I mistakenly put all the electrical symbols on paperspace instead of modelspace and they won't scale with the plan.

Is there an easy way to copy my electrical symbols from paperspace to modelspace to avoid redrawing everything?

Sure, copy all of the symbols and insert them into the model space. insert them somewhere out of the way. Since you were using a 1/4" viewport you want to scale the symbols up by 48 I believe. This should get them back to the correct size. You will need to move them all back into position, try to find a reference point before you copy and scale though.
