Image Scaling Issues

Hello All,


When zooming out, (waaaaay out,) images, (in this case, arrow heads,) including those inserted into titleblocks, (like company logos,) enlarge to create a very messy looking drawing.  The issue is repeatable and consistent with our up-to-date systems.


Has anyone seen anything like this at all?

No. If I was AutoDesk I would blame your graphics card. What card/driver are you using? Have you tried playing around with the graphics settings? Try different combinations of compatibility/performance modes and software/hardware graphics. Have you tried installing the just released (like 15 minutes ago) SP1?


Windows 7 includes a snipping tool that takes much better sceen shots then that. You should give it a try.


I like the bottle of Advil right behind the screen.

The company uses NVIDIA of varying types.  In every case, on every machine it happens exactly the same way.  the attached pictures show what happens.  GLM1 is a picture of just the border zoomed to extents.  GLM2 is quite zoomed out (the border is in the lower left, (red arrow) and the images are huge.  When I delete the images from the border in the GLM1 image, they disappear from the zoomed out image.  I am stumped.
