I can’t figure out what I am doing wrong, I am trying to dimension my drawings in Paper space but when I pull a dimension to measure an area its giving me the actual paper space measurement. For Example, if I measure something that is 3' it says its 1-1/2" in paper space. If I pull a dimension in model space its correct.
I figure this is a quick fix I just can’t seem to figure out the problem
Any help would be great!
Whether annotative or not, Dimensions in Paper Space can dimension "in" Paper Space or "in" Model Space.
For your Dimensions in Paper Space that are dimensioning Objects in Model Space from Paper Space:
1. Type "dim", enter, to start the Dimension command
2. Type "dimlfac", enter, to set the scale factor for linear dimension measurements, but don't enter any number, instead:
3. Type "v", enter and select the Viewport containing the object,
4. Continue your Dimension command.
NOTE: You can type "dimlfac" before starting the Dimension Command, but it will not offer you "v" for selecting a Viewport.
