I am working in a drawing that had all archetectual scales. I Need to insert scales like 1"=30' and so on. Usually when i go to this menu i can simply add them, but in this drawing they arent there. I started this drawing using the relitivly blank template ACAD.dwt because i am trying to build a company template and did not want any trash.
How does autocad chooses wich scales to show. In drawing setting it is set to US Survey foot.
The link below talks about the issue, but i really do not understand the results.
Solved! Go to Solution.
The image above shows that it was already set to feet, but i had never heard of that varible, thanks.
This has been a known problem and can be fixed by modifying the registry key. looks like 2013 in your screen grab. I have attached reg edit file for your use. All disclaimers apply to editing registry blah blah blah
Click the RESET button (shown in your screen shot) and, oddly enough, select Metric. This will load what you're looking for
Thanks, That got it.
I never tried tried the reg edit, but that could be the problem. I asked the IT guy to do a reinstall the otherday to try and get back the layout tools when entering layout tabs, and instead he just erased some stuff in the Registry. It did not fix anything.
Thanks everone involved.
