unable to display scale dimensions

My sheetsetup scale is 1:50 before I start but when I draw a line 100mm long it displays as 100 instead of 5000mm. I have looked everywhere but unable to get a scaled dimension to display??

Re: unable to display scale dimensions

2DModel space is where you do your drawing at full scale e.g. 1:1. You do not normally draw your models in any other scale than 1:1. If you were to draw the Skylab you draw it at full scale in Model space and then plot/print it at the appropriate scale in paper space, this can be A4 to A1 paper size at any scale that will fit. You can also print magnified detail areas of your drawing or part drawing at larger scales.
