Dear User. I am new to DS but with little CAD exp. I have problem with scaling. I have to draw floor plan of production hall, size in real 40 (471 inchs )feet by 80 feet (945 inches). So I use DS, set drawing boundary from Format tab, to 0,0 - 11.5,8 = regular A4 format. I have to enter like that, it does not accept boundry like: 500 x 1000. I am using unit=inch. I draw first rectangle which start like 124 and 103 inches from left corner. I can print it correctly (from sheet1 - all geometry). I just can not see it on the screen where the white rectangle is as the area to work on. I have to drastically zoom it out to see my rectangle but then my white area to work on is so small, is so tiny. The white area on screen to work on has the drawing boundry values it can not be increase to hundreds. I know that I have to draft in scale 1:1 then print it in scale to print. What should I do to see just drafted rectangle on the white area on the screen?? Thanks
