Placing symbols at viewport scaled distances on another layer

If I have a viewport with a plan scaled at 1:50 or whatever, how can I overlay symbols on another layer and position and dimension them to the same scale and not 1:1 paper scale?

Lighting symbols in this instance that I want to space out and dimension


Either draw them at 1:1 appropriately sized so that they correspond to the viewport scale or use the Scaled Drawing feature…
