Drawing is wrong size

Post by Brianparramore » Thu Jun 18, 2020 5:03 pm

Using Q Cad version 3.24.3 recently updated. Since updating, a scale error has arisen.When I create a drawing, it is the wrong size. In the attached drawing the large circles were created as 5" diameter, the small circles were 1.44" diameter, and the center to center distance was 6" In some drawings the scale is off by a factor of 4. Rescaling the drawing does not correct issue. In "drawing Preferences," the size scale factor is set to 1.

Not your drawing is off, your dimensions are created at a scale.
