Subject: Using scroll bars

To assist you in navigating within a drawing, horizontal and vertical scroll bars are available in each drawing window. The size of the scroll box in relation to the scroll bar indicates the current level of drawing magnification. The position of the scroll box in relation to the scroll bar indicates the location of the center of the drawing in relation to the extents of the drawing (the smallest rectangle containing all the entities in the drawing).

   On the ribbon, choose View > Scroll Bars (in Display).

   On the menu, choose View > Display > Scroll Bars.

   Choose Tools > Options > Display tab, and select Show Scroll Bars.
