Resizing - Scaling
Read 942 times

When I select a drawing using select all and drag to the desired size, everything thing seems to be sized correctly except the dimensions, The arrows and text stay the same. How can I overcome this and have everything in the drawing be correct when I resize or scale this way?

Using TCPP21.

re: …The arrows and text stay the same…

Select all the errant dimensions, go to the "Format" page, then change the "Dimension Size Scale" to a new size. Text, arrowheads, spacing will become larger/smaller depending on what is input.

Thanks for the reply. I had slipped and did not mention that I had already tried that. But then the dimensions were also changed whether from the resizing of the drawing or the change in value on the dimension properties scale. Don't want to totally have to dimension the print from scratch after resizing.

I am not sure I understand you correctly.
Generally you draw 1:1  and then the text and change dimensions properties, depending on the print scale ,
so that when you print they are an appropriate size.
It sounds like you are drawing at one scale and to change the scale stretching or scaling your drawing.

When you do this the dimension properties will still be at the same settings and therefore smaller or larger then you want them to be
If I am correct, you need to change the properties of the dimensions as well as stretching or scaling.
