See if the attached Drawing does anything for you Phil.
Since you had tinkered around so much with the original file, I went back to that original file you Posted (Newent-Freemans(Cargill)TCP.tcw
) and started from there.
I saw that the original draftsperson gave us a scale-legend-reference to verify scaling accuracy when printed (at the top, in the top, original, floorplan).
After working with it for a while, I realized that it was in fact drawn at full-scale, and decided to trust the original draftsperson's dimensions.
I assumed that you copied his floorplan and drew the extension area onto that copy.
So, since this Drawing was less boogered-up
than the one you most recently posted, all I did was:
- Removed all the "space dust"
- Moved your "extension" floorplan so that it is more-or-less at: X=0; Y=0 (the built-in World Workplane origin)
- Moved the "existing floorplan" and its surrounding Objects closer to the "extension" floorplan, and lined it up with that floorplan
- Changed those dotted lines that are on the "Constructions" Layer that represent the size of the paper to Yellow & Continuous (for clarity)
- Selected All; activated Workplane by World; Place[ed] on Workplane (to "clean up" the Drawing; I kept getting the typical TurboCAD warning when selecting some Objects in 2D Selector mode)
- Grouped the "existing floorplan" so to make it less subject to inadvertent screwing it up
- Updated the Named Views to correspond with where I moved everything to
- Changed the two Linear Dimensions that were already there: Increased their scale in their Properties->Format page (for easier viewing when printed); in their Properties->Units/Tolerance page, I changed their Precision and Round-Off, and checked Append Units; in the Properties->General/Info area, I deleted the text so that it would re-populate with the correct, more precise, rounded-off dimension
- Got rid of a Paperspace
- Inserted a Viewport into the remaining Paperspace (A3 sheet); adjusted the Viewports Scale to "Fixed" and "1:100"
Seems to me (as John R. stated) that the original draftsperson set his Drawing up so that it could be printed from Modelspace at a 1:50 scale to be printed on an A2 sheet (594mm X 420mm). Maybe you would like to switch to that scaling and that sheet size. I've include that Paperspace and Viewport as well; though, 1:50 won't accommodate your full floorplan, so I made the Viewport scale 1:60. [maybe you want to go with an A1 sheet, and stay with the 1:50 Viewport scale]
