A QUESTION ABOUT DRAWING SCALE

At work I am using AutoOrtho (part of procad suite)

Can somebody tell me which variable contains the scale of drawing?

See attachment

Thanks a lot

Hi,

 

>> Can somebody tell me which variable contains the scale of drawing?

From your dialog I guess you think about CANNOSCALE (>>>details<<<), but it's just the scale-variable for annotative-objects, not for the drawing itself!

AutoORTHO hijacks the current DIMSCALE value to use as a scale factor for inserting blocks.  Older versions of the program would store the value in one of the USERnnn system variables.
