New Jobs and Drawing Scale.

The prompt for the Drawing Scale when you start a new drawing, is used to define the height of all lettering and symbols.

The linework in all cases remains at full scale so you can measure between points and get the same distance as you would in the field. The Drawing scale is used to automate the calculation of how big the lettering should be in this diagram so that when you plot this out to paper the lettering will be at the correct size. When you run the Print/Plot command you should maintain the same plotting scale as you entered for the drawing scale. This ensures consistency and you will get a plot that is correct in scale for both the linework and the lettering/symbols.
