Paper orientation

Paper orientation can be

Portrait - orients and plots the drawing so that the short edge of the paper represents the top of the page.

Landscape - orients and plots the drawing so that the long edge of the paper represents the top of the page.

Fit to paper - draws files within current number of sheets.

Scale factor - allows defining exact correspondence between a line length on the paper sheet (in millimeters or in inches) and its length in drawing units. This correlation is expressed by the following formula: X = Y, where X – is one millimeter (or inch) of a sheet, Y – drawing units. Thus Scale factor: 1:2 means that 1 sheet millimeter will contain two drawing points.

The most recently used standard scales are displayed in the following drop down list:
