I want to draw over a photo (jpg). I inserted the photo into model space, but the photo does not fade into the background allowing my drawn lines to cover it. The photo covers the drawn lines when the two are put together.
You're posting in the wrong forum - this one is not for product-specific issues as noted at the top of this forum.
BTW - Insert the photo into model space, create a viewport, and draw in paper space.
I'm new to the forum in general. Which division of the forum should I post my question in?
I don't think drawing in paper space will give me the abililty to properly scale my drawing. Do you think I can scale it?
Looks like the 'where' was answered for you. You could also try the Drafting Techniques forum.
Regarding your issue, If you make the Viewport Scale 1:1, you can draw and scale it afterwards. Setting the viewport to 1:1 only matters if the image is to some scale.
I've already done the drawing in model space. I'm trying to put the photo under the drawing. I'm not sure how to bring my model space drawing to paper and maintain it's 1/4" scale.
Thanks for all your help... I think we're almost there!!
Awesome, that is working!!!
However, I can see all my layers in model space, but in paper space I can only see one layer. Do you have any tricks to let all the layers show in paper space?
Are they frozen in the Viewport? Double-click in the viewport to enter Model Space and go to the layer pulldown. There is an icon to represent this. Then double-click outside the viewport to exit Model Space.
