scaling


I've imported a bitmap file and now I want to scale it to actual size before tracing
it. I measure the scanned image (using the measure tool) and it is 52.787 ft. In
real life the scanned image is actually 78.3 ft. I try to change the scale on the
Drawing Setup Screen from 1:1 to 1.4833 which should equate to 78.3 ft. but it does
not take (reverts back to 1:1). I am trying to use file, drawing area setup and
changing the scale 1:1 to get the real world dimensions. How do you change the
scale of a drawn object?

Dave,
You don't need to use Drawing Setup to accomplish this. Select the image
and in the ribbon bar you will see the width & height dimensions for the
image. Just change one or the other to the necessary size. Lock Aspect
Ratio should be activated by default so chaning one should suffice.
