Sometimes Wiki can be a good source for these kind of queries
Thanks for the reply wd. Yeah, the Wiki was the second
place I looked, after the Help Topics
. Unfortunately, both kind of explain how Options|Drawing Setup|Space Units|Scale should
work- it's pretty much what one would intuitively infer.
But, like I say, when I mess with it (a bunch), no results demonstrate that anything is really happening. Makes me think that it just really kind of doesn't work, or something.
I'd be interested in hearing if anyone can explain more on the beneficial use of Options|Drawing Setup|Space Units|Scale
, what we should expect from it, and if it really does what we (intuitively) think it should. --e.g.: If I am in Model Space, with Architectural/Full Scale
, and I draw a Wall that is 10' long, then I go up there and change to Architectural/Â¼"=1'
, then Select
the Wall, in the Inspector Bar and Selection Info Metrics, it still shows 10'-0". Likewise, after I changed the Scale to Architectural/Â¼"=1'
, and draw a new
object of 10' in length, then Select
it, the Inspector Bar (and when Dimensioned) still shows 10'-0". I would have thought it would show 480' or something.
Anyway, not urgent or dire, or anything. Just wanted to get a handle on understanding this (Options|Drawing Setup|Space Units|Scale
)- especially since it is such a basic/fundamental
element of CAD.
