How to transfer the Block and Title block into viewport
« on: March 23, 2012, 08:56:15 pm »
I'm having a problem with the block and title block fitting into the frame.  The block and title block seem to be larger than the frame.  Help please. 

Thank you,

Hi Daria:

I am not exactly sure what you are trying to do? and what you mean by the "frame?"....Do you mean the layout page? Are you trying to place a title block from another source onto your layout page in paper space? Being more specific with your questions will really help us to help you more efficiently.

If you are working with pre-made title block that is larger than your layout sheet, first check tht your layout page is the right size. Right click on the layout tab and select "PAGE SETUP MANAGER". In the dialogue box that comes up, it will tell you what size the sheet is at the current time. If you need to change the size of your layout page, you can select the page size area and make the change...

Once your page is the correct size, if your title block is still too big, you can adjust it by using the scale command or the stretch command. If your title block is a "block", then you will need to use the EXPLODE command first to be able to work with it. Be sure that when your title block is complete, that it sits within the dashed "printable area" line on your layout page.
