Hello...i have a bit of a problem with Autocad map 3d 2012. When i try to insert a scale bar or a north arrow or any other carthographic element i simply can't find the layout elements that are supposed to be in layout tools tab. I've done a lot of research online and can't come up with anything. I'd really appreciate some help on this as i am quite new to Autocad, and i've tried every solution that has come to my newbie brain
Solved! Go to Solution.
Yes i am...i really don't know what the issue is. I am in paper space, i have created view ports in paper space, i have map data as well. It just seems to me like i'm missing some sort of plugin but i don't know since i only just started using this software about 2 weeks ago

AFAIK these (north-arrow, scale-bar) items are new to 2013, you won't find them in 2012.

I mean without using map books....just an inset scale bar, north arrow and perhaps title block. I have investigated by the way and the solution i found- mapbooks - was not quite ideal for me
you can always use blocks you define yourself, but they will not be connected to a viewport like 2013 does it (at least without development).
