    Will someone please look at this Plot window for Autocad 2000 and tell me why I am unable to print this drawing out 10 X it's size? I have something set wrong!

    what happens when you hit the print button? I think we are going to need some more information on what ' not plotting at 10:1' means.
    If you would like to help my 2 year old niece Alaina in her battle against Leukemia you can donate blood at any Carter Blood Care and put SPON050875 on the donor form. Thank you so much for any contributions in this matter that you can make.

    First question: What are the drawing units?

    Second question with followup: Are you using a viewport? If so, what is its scale?

    The 63" margin is a clue that there's a scale issue.

    You have not posted a screen shot, and you are printing "Display". Are you zoomed in so that what you want to print is filling the whole screen?

    I think you would be better to pick a "Window" to plot, then you know what you will get on the paper.
