Im trying to figure out how to make my drawing limits larger.  I've been trying to draw house plans but when i draw a wall lets say 30', the line goes off the page. I know there's a way to change the the drawing limits but i just can't remember.  Thanks

Command: LIMITS, pick lower left, upper right, or set LIMITS to off.


You're using the way of Pre Autocad R12 when it had no paperspace.

Focus on drawing full size in Modelspace and fit the model into Paperspace.

Turned Limits off in the last century.
Is there a reason you need to use Limits?


Maybe what you really need is zoom all?
