RE: AUTOCAD: What's Your Preference?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I put everything in model space and then use paper space just to get the
layout for printing.  I use template drawings set up for each scale that
I use.  Sometimes, if everything is the same scale, I just publish in
model space.  For me, the main use of paper space is combining details
of different scales on the same drawing.

(Only answer if you're "modern" and use "Paper Space"):

When annotating drawings with dimensions, notes, callouts, etc., do you:

1)	Put those in Model space and size them accordingly,
2)	Put them in Paper Space, or
3)	Have some combination of 1) and 2) that you prefer (please
elaborate)?
