Subject: Zooming to a specific scale



You can increase or decrease the magnification of your view by a precise scale factor measured relative to the overall size of the drawing or in relation to the current dis­play. When you change the magnification factor, the portion of the drawing located at the center of the current viewport remains centered on the screen.    

To change the magnification of the view relative to the overall size of the drawing, type a number representing the magnification scale factor. For example, if you type a scale factor of 2, the drawing appears at twice its original size. If you type a magnifi­cation factor of .5, the drawing appears at half its original size.

You can also change the magnification of the drawing relative to its current magnifi­cation by adding an x after the magnification scale factor. For example, if you type a scale factor of 2x, the drawing changes to twice its current size. If you type a magnifi­cation factor of .5x, the drawing changes to half its current size.
