Title block on sheet layer

Recommended Posts


I created a custom title block border in design layer and saved it as a plug-in object.

Now I am trying to use this TBB on the sheet layers, but the layout and dimension of TBB goes completely haywire on sheet layers. Cant understand whats happening, although dimension of design layer & sheet layer is same.

Also, the ruler under tool dialogue box in design layer is showing different then sheet layer's. Dont know why..

Thanks for help.

Sheet Layers have a 1:1 scale (outside of viewports. Inside viewports you can set the scale for each viewport). If you Design Layer is something other than 1:1, then when you put is on a sheet layer it will display strangely.

Just to add to Pat's reply, this does not only apply to just titleblocks but to anything you create on a design layer (e.g. custom north arrow symbol) that you want to put on a sheet layer. Design layer should always be set to 1:1 scale when creating anything that will be put on a sheet layer. In that case also make sure that units of the design layer match those of the sheet layer if possible and that units for symbols are set to page based instead of world based. If relevant also set your insertion origin for the symbol.
