Drawiing to scale and trying to turn into a block and when I do it scale down real small to where I can hardly see it . Is it something I need to change in my settings and where do I change it at ?

Are you drawing at 1:1? or some other 'scale'?

Are all the files 1:1?

What UNITS are all the files set? Look it up using -DWGUNITS (there is a dash in the name).

What is INSUNITS set to in the file where this block shrinks?


Are you creating an annotative block?
