I am very impressed generally with nanoCAD :)

One thing I seem to be struggling with is setting the scale in paperspace.

With AutoCAD I used to open the relevant paperspace 'sheet' of paper, click on the viewpoint border, click scale, enter a scale, say 1/100xp and click return.

How do I do it in NanoCAD ?

Cheers

Will :)

If you have the inspector window up, select your viewport and select your scale in th Misc section. Standard scale of custom. Easy as.

you've lost me. :wacko: I'm obviously making this harder than it needs to be somehow :)

In paperspace, click on the edge of the viewport to select it? the obvious thing seems to be then to click the scale bottom right of the screen but nothing happens...

Ah! Got you now, I'm getting there! Cracked the normal scales now :)

How do I set a custom scale. say 1:500 or 1:1250?

change to custom scale and enter it as a decimal. 1:1250 = 0.0008

Hi,

Is there a way to have those standard scales in imperial units (inches). this would make my life much easier... for now, I have to set the scale to 0,020833 in order to have a viewport at 1/4"=1'-0"...

By the way, very happy with Nanocad 7pro. never going back to autocad...
