Layout orientation

Problems with layout.
How to orient drawing to layout corners? Drawing is 297x210 and Layout is also 297x210.
Zoom extents does not orient it correct…

There are two issues here: the size of the detail and the scale of the detail.

  1. You can draw (and also scale1D, scale2D) a detail by snapping to the corners of the layout. That will ensure that the size of the detail is correct.
  2. When the size is correct, you can set its scale to be 1:1. This will make that rectangle be on the border border of the layout.

Hi Wagner,

The command SetZoomExtentsBorder lets you set the factor for zoomextends to zoom out.
Set this to 1 to gat an exact fit


Thank you very much everybody. It works great now!
