Drawings have changed scale/size

I have been working on a drawing over the past 2 years and I have just noticed the drawings on each layer have changed in size? the building has gone from 7.414m to 7.126, the lintels from 225 to 215mm and the beams from 350 to 334mm.

All the drawings I have done over the last week are no longer valid as I have been working on false data. Has this re-sizing happened to anybody ells?

The 'out of scale' factor is pretty consistent and my guess is that at some stage you have inadvertently scaled the 'Entire Drawing' when you have tried to scale an object. What you need to do is rescale the whole drawing again so that you get everything back to being the right size.

You are not the first person to do this and you won't be the last. I know a user who does this regularly because of the failure to get it that the when 'Entire Drawing' is check marked this means that everything in the drawing will be scaled.
