    the part don't understand .... when making viewports for metric drawings..... im not clear how to edit the drawing scales for the scales I need 1:100, 1:200,1:300


    I understand your point about using metric paper sizes... but still doesnt work?


    are my scale properties correct? 1:3? in this drawing...


    imperial drawing and scaling is more straight forward...lol

    piece is drawn in imperial because scale 1:25 it should not be small especially in an 8.5x11 sheet of paper piece will not fit the viewport a that scale
