Need help with figuring out what scale to type into my title block. I am in version 2010, doing this via correspondence, never use Paper space or Layout space (are those the same thing?), always draw at full scale, and submit my drawings in Model space. Here's the thing. In my previous drawings, once completed, I insert a title block and scale it up to fit around the current drawing (in Model space). I have been told to use the scale factor I used to fit the title block around my drawing as the scale in the title block (didn't understand why even tho' I asked and it was explained to me). It seems to work since I have been getting 100% on my previous drawings. My dilemma is now this: I have drawn my Driveway Profile to scale in Decimal units 0.00. I needed to scale this down so that my grid lines measured 1" x 1", so I scaled it down at 1/60 (the lines that need to be 1" were 60 units long), then I changed my drawing units to Architectural inches. When I use LIST, the line measures 1" so I'm pretty sure that is right. Now, when I insert my title block I need to scale it down as it's too big this time. I have scaled it down by 1/7. So do I note the scale in my title block as 1:1/7, or does the 1/60 scale come into play (when I originally scaled down my drawing)? Sorry about the wordiness of this post - I tried going back to my textbook -to no avail, and I read numerous threads which mostly include Layout space in the mix which I am not doing. Hopefully my question makes sense to someone who can help me.
