Tip of the Day

Add additional "standard scales"

Edit Scale List

To create additional "standard scales" in AutoCAD, type SCALELISTEDIT. You will then see the Edit Scale List dialog, shown on the right.

Click on the Add… button. In the Add scale dialog, enter the name of the scale, for example "1:1250", this is the name that will appear in the list. Then enter the Paper units and Drawing units as desired.

Note: "Drawing units" refers to the modelspace units.
