I wasn't really asking anyone to solve the issue. It was more of a "Do people really think?" type of question. :-)

see... that's why I removed my answer....  :roll:

let's remove it again..... !

Back on topic...

Why won't my dimensions be consistent when the text doesn't fit between extension lines?  It seems to randomly add a leader and go out at an angle when I place the dimension, or sometimes go straight to the left or right, beside it... but never consistent! grr...

Yeah, Josh, I experience that independant, "ACAD is gonna do it it's own way" dimensions, too.  Usually it will plop the dimension down on top of another.

If a technician inserts a border that is 30” x 42”
Into a drawing that is at an unknown scale…
And that technician has to scale the border up or down to fit around the contents
Then the technician prints this drawing to a piece of paper using a “scale to fit” option

What is the actual size of the drawing?

The "E Size" drawing used for this test came out at 26-1/4” by 36”

Is it only me that is missing the logic here? :?
Okay, clear up a couple of things for me here (unless I missed something in the posts being deleted and edited) I REALLY wish folks won't do that, it mucks with the train of the thread

1.)  Why is the scale “unknown”?  Should be easy to deduce.
2.)  Why not attempt to properly scale the border upon insertion, and then you know the plot scale?
3.)  If he inserted an E-size border, why plot (to fit) to a smaller sheet?  What did he plot, Limits, Window, Extents, Display, View??

The questions were rhetorical.  It's basically a thread to vent about those quirky things that come along to us CAD folk. (correct me if I'm wrong, Arizona)  You may find this thread disinteresting since your CAD world is so perfect and precise, though, Randy  :wink:

Fixed..  That's what I get for going and working on something else, then coming back and adding a sentence in the middle without re-reading it.

I'm just glad I get to preserve it.   :-D

Ahhh.... you guys need bigger teeth farther up the food chain, eh?

Dunno about perfect and precise, but it's MY way, and that's good enough for me.

I would say by Josh's immediate edit it was more a "slip of the tongue"

I didn't remove anything.  I just reorganized it to make it, hopefully, less confusing.

I have this really strange combination of Frank Sinatra and Cookie Monster singing in my head.
