    Are you selecting the viewport and picking the scale to apply to the viewport? Exactly how are you applying the scale to the viewport? Can you attach the drawing to your next post here?

    You shouldn't try to do metric on 8"x10" paper, it should be the appropriate size for metric which would be ~200x254. The relationship between MS and PS will never work out unless you are matching systems in both, either both imperial, or both metric (SI).

    Wait. I should have asked about the units. What units are you drawing in?
    It will only work if your dwg units are metric

    I just looked at the drawing. Your dwgunits are inches and so are your paperspace units. The viewport scales are a ratio of ONE paperspace unit = NNN modelspace units. Since the drawing is only about 8" wide, why plot at 1" = 100"? 1:3 works fine One paperspace inch = 3 modelspace inches.

    Then that begs the question, are you in a metric or imperial country? If you are imperial (feet & inches) then see my prior post.

    Now my post #5 makes no sense at all. I should have looked at the drawing first.
