Printing scale dimensioned drawings in layout


#1

I am trying to print out a scaled and dimensioned drawing in Layout with two side by side views. There is no function I can see where I can get the views to be at the same scale or zoom level. Am I missing something?


#2

Layout details need to be parallel viewports, like top, bottom, right, etc. Only then will you be able to enter a scale factor in the appropriate field in the properties window.


#3

You need to activate (click, NOT double.click!) the corresponding view pane, then, in the properties sidebar, there´s the layout detail properties with “Scale” and “Lock”.

Thank, I’ve done both, but we need a higher level of control.
