  1. I set up a new page thus (I live in a country which uses metric units, so ...): Then: Command: '_limits Reset Model space limits: Specify lower left corner or [ON/OFF] : 0.00,0.00 Specify upper right corner : 3.65,2.74 Command: C CIRCLE Specify center point for circle or [3P/2P/Ttr (tan tan radius)]: 1000,1000 Specify radius of circle or [Diameter]: 250 Command: and I get: The circle was centred at x=1000 metres, y=1000 metres, yet it displays right down at the bottom left of my screen. Compare the radius of the circle to the distance from the centre to the origin - it's nothing like 1:4! Look at the coordinates for the cursor! Zooming in and zooming out has no effect on the huge dimensions indicated by the coordinates. I know this must be simple because it is not mentioned in any textbook or tutorial I have been able to find. Authors don't seem to think it is important, but it's driving me nuts! The question is this: How do I set the page size and grid scale to something sane? I am pretty sure that this scale problem is at the root of many of the other problems I am having. A14 is doing it's job faithfully but the display is so small that I cannot see what is happening ! All assistance much appreciated.
