Set the Plot Scale for a Layout
 
 
 

When you plot a drawing layout, you can either specify a precise scale for the layout or fit the image to the paper.

Normally, you plot a layout at a 1:1 scale. To specify a different scale for the layout, set the plot scale for the layout in the Page Setup or the Plot dialog box. In those dialog boxes, you can select a scale from a list or enter a scale.

NoteYou can modify the list of scales with SCALELISTEDIT.

When you are reviewing an early draft view, a precise scale is not always important. You can use the Fit to Paper setting to plot the layout at the largest possible size that fits the paper.
