ccf4CAD posted a topic in AutoCAD 2D Drafting, Object Properties & InterfaceOkay, I'm new to drawing and I need help getting my text/dimensions to be legible on an 11x17 sheet. I had no problems when my company used Arch D (24x36) but in an effort to "going green" we converted to the B size paper (11x17). Has anyone found a useful chart for plotting in different scales. Maybe a standard size chart. I usually print in 3/8", 1/2", 6", and full size paper space viewports. Please save me from having to invent some type of microscope for paper!
Hi, I am using AutoCad 2010 Lt. When dimensioning parts the size of the dimension is very very small, i change the dimension style to Annotation and change the Annotation scale down the bottom right hand side then click linear dimension and it hasn't changed the size ? Sometimes it seems to work but most times it doesen't, is there a set procedure / sure fire way to change the dimension scale ? (even a way to save a type of dimension scale for all drawings or something like that). Most times lately i end up exporting a dxf and dimensioning it in another program. But it would be good to be able to do the lot in AutoCad.
