I work in autocad 2010 and I draw in scale 1:1
I have no idea what an annotation scale is, moreover I have never used annotative objects in my drawings.
Nonetheless, when I try to plot a drawing, while I am in the model view, I choose the scale in mm/units, I select the plot area and when I press preview or plot, I get the message THE ANNOTATION SCALE IS NOT EQUAL TO THE PLOT SCALE. DO YOU WANT TO CONTINUE?
I press yes, I print it and the outcome is always a bit smaller than it should be.
How can I fix this????
p.s. When i am in the layout mode and I try to plot, I dont get this message. But I dont know how scaling works in this case. For example I want to plot in a A4 paper, scale 1:100. So I type 1000mm/100units, as I did in the model mode, but the result is wrong.
OP you have to start on a Layout tab and pick a TEXTSTYLE you wish to use for your annotative text and dimensions, and set its height to zero and make it annotative. It will ask you what height you want the text to be in paperspace. You set all the parameters of your annotative text and dimension styles in paperspace, and test them as you go (to make sure the output looks good to you).
Now, in modelspace, you set the CANNOSCALE to match the scale of a paperspace viewport (yours is probably set to the default of 1:1 at the moment). Now when you annotate in modelspace your annotative text and dimensions should look the proper size. If you change your CANNOSCALE to match a different viewport scale, you'll notice these objects will change in size to accommodate the change.
I think you get the warning message because you are using a non-annotative object with a CANNOSCALE set to 1:1...
BTW plotitng in paperspace should be at 1:1!
The fastest solution is to match the plot scale to the annotation scale before plotting. This can be done by entering the scale you need down in the right corner , in the tray on the icon of annotation scale. Should help!
