    AutoCAD multiple scales in one dwg

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    Some time I have to check multiple scales in one dwg.
    i.e. one dwg / one model dwg and 4 to 6 layout with different scales and dimension.

    1. How is the best way to check the standard scale dimension?
    in multiple layout ?
    2. If model scale changes it will affect the layout different scale?

    Objects in model space should ALWAYS be drawn FULL size. NEVER change the scale of objects in model space if you have a layout or layouts with different scales. You're only asking for trouble.

    You could use Field,Object, select viewport, standard scale, place near viewport. Do this on a non-plotting layer. As the viewport scale changes the field will update, usually after a regen.

    Otherwise simply dbl click inside a viewport, look down at the anno scale. Use properties, etc.
