How to add a scale bar?

Recommended Posts

By default, when you put in a scale bar, the units are set very small. If you look at the settings in the Object Info Palette after you enter it, you will see something like a minor length of 6mm and a major length of 25mm (I am using Feet/Inches and it is 1/4" / 1")

If you have a 1:50 scale, these need to be much bigger. For my 1:48 scale drawing, I typically use 6" as the minor length and 1' as the major length.
