View Scaling - what does it do and does it actually work?


I’m playing around with this in my custom display properties. So far it appears to be a “dummy” setting with no effect. Is there something I’m missing?

Hi Keith - it will distort the view, when using that display mode, according to the ratio - so in this case, the disply would be compressed laterally.
This is a circle:

It is handy when viewing, for example, long rows of control points - the out of line ones are exaggerated.

It can be useful for fairing curves as well.

Does it work in every view style?

Edit: I just switched files. It works in my new file but not the original file where I created the style (a duplicated of arctic with an increased vertical scale). So far it works in 1 out of 3 files I’ve tested.
