Hi all,

very new to this so please bear with me :)

I want to add a scale bar to my autocad OS Map drawing - so when i print from the viewport its visble - How do I do this ? and are they dynamic - i.e when i change the scale in the viewport window the scale bar adjusts accordingly

I hope this is something simple ...

Thanks is advance

Forgot to mention its Autocad 2011 Student edition

Hi there buddy,if i understand right its quite easy.all you do is: in model space draw a scale bar  next to your drawing(so that its visable in you viewport)take that scale bar  and just offset you measurements  that you want so what ever scale you print your drawing your scale bar will always be the same ratio as your drawing
