I keep having problems with dimensions scaling properly in paper space. What is the correct procedure for setting up and maintaining a viewport and layout so the scale stays correct for model space dimensions? I'm new at this method of dimensioning.
Set DIMASSOC to 2. Osnap to points in MS through the viewport. You can't snap from one vp to another one. Your dimstyle will be set so that on the Fit tab you will either pick Annotative, or Scale dims to layout, or Use overall scale of 1.
I think that is about it.
Thanks, must be the dimstyle, they have a setup program that sets the scale for dims and annotations here for Model Space. Probably whats causing the conflict.
Hi there Grant, why can't I snap to objects in the Viewport while in Paper Space? I am using QDIM. I can't manage to have my Paper Space dimensions to adapt to the scale of the Viewport.
Also, what do the DimStyle settings need to be? Like...
Primary Units > Measurement Scale, and Scale Factor?
Fit > Scale for Dimension Features?
My LTS = 1, DIMSCALE = 1
Quit using QDIM, and start using the DIM mode and DMLINEAR etc commands,
QDIM has ..... issues asyou are learning
You can also jump in with the DIM1 command and then the specific dimensioning command you need.
Generally speaking if you set DIMSCALE to 0 you'll be better off
