I am a very very newbie user and want to know how to draw in 2D to scale, for instance 1/4"=1ft, or 1"= 1 foot, and full scale 1:1… I draw small things in 2D with lines.
- When I open a new drawing page and draw line that’s about 1" on the screen, it measures 20ft in the program…? I can magnify and keep shortening the line until it reads something reasonable… but that’s a lot of trial and error…
- It would seem to me that you’d just tell the program that you’re drawing in, for instance, 1/2" scale and then start drawing…?
- I read about the “Layout” mode, but can’t find it… how do you enter Layout? Do I need to be there to do the simple line drawings I want?
- Maybe I have the wrong Program? Can anybody recommend an inexpensive, simple 2D program that is suitable for floor plans?
