comcu Posted August 26, 2016 Share Posted August 26, 2016 Hi, my new company are using autocad LT and dim everything in paper space. I have no choice in the matter so am trying to follow procedure. I can see the benefits of it but have had a few errors which is causing me problems. basicially the dimension are not reading the vaule they should. for example I have a drawing with a view port of 1:16 (don't ask) and dimensioned from two points a value of 2400mm. I then continued drawing and at some point have went back and noticed the dim now reads 38,400mm. this is happening often and I can see the relation of the sizes, 2400 x 16 = 38,400mm. this has had me stumped and I started deleting dims and then redoing them and then noticed if I match properties it would go back to 2400mm. I then noticed today that if I select the dim and go to the properties window and "Primary Units" the "dim linear scale" value is "-255.9999" I then changed the value to "1" and then dim corrects itself. I did notice that the value in the properties changed from "1" to "-16" as soon as I type "1" and enter. Now I know that before I print I do a select all, filter rotated dims and change value to "1" this should solve the problem but this feels like a work around and I must be missing something. many thanks for any help. I have search online and have found an answer altho quite a few mentions. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
