For years, I have been avoiding paper space because I was always wanting a slightly different view and it was easiest to just set that up in model space and take it from there. Following some leads in another thread about another problem, now solved (hooray), I got introduced to paper space and I can see that, for the current project, it has some real attractions since I can create and edit some standard views and print them all to the same scale. The drawing in this case is of a garden which is 110' on a side with a fence in 11' from the outside and gateways and walks coming in from the center of each side. Each quadrant inside the fence is run by a different group and thus makes a sensible view. Each of the four borders is also run by a separate group. That is very long and thin, so we want to break that into two pieces and print them over and under (from a landscape perspective).
So, for the quadrants, I create a landscape paper space, a view in the model, then put a viewport on the paper. I diddle with the sizes and alignment and apply a standard fixed scale and we are in business. I just print that to a laser using View and Landscape and I have a nicely filled page.
For the North border, i.e., the one at the top of the drawing, I create the landscape paper space, two views for the left and right half, and put two viewports on the paper over and under. Diddle as above and print as above and I get exactly what I expect.
For the West border, the one at the left of the drawing, I have an issue because the two halves run the wrong way for a landscape sheet so I either need to rotate the viewport on the paper or lay it out portrait. So, I since I haven't been able to figure out how to rotate, I created a paper space, converted it to portrait, zoom extents so I can see it all, drew the two views, and put two viewports on the paper left and right, i.e., the same size and placement on the paper as if the paper were the North border example. On the screen, it looks ducky. When I print it using View and Portrait, however, I am ending up with two viewports which are much smaller than the others, despite the fact that I can see they have the same size. They are correctly oriented on the paper, but much too small. This also happens if I print to PDF.
So, what am I missing?
