Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
Try this:

  1. On the command line of AutoCAD, enter the SCALE. command.
  2. At the Select objects prompt, enter all
  3. Press the Enter key to exit the Select objects prompt.
  4. Enter 0,0 for the base point.
  5. When prompted for scale factor, enter 25.4. (Use 2.54 for centimeters.)

For the SCALE command method, adjust the dimension text and arrowhead height in the dimension style as needed.

I would prefer a call, speak to someone &b teach me how to do it because I will have to do it for 7 other drawings
Software technician: Russell H., Computer Support Specialist replied 7 months ago

If those commands didn't have any effect, don't save the document you tried to alter that way - close the session without saving it.

What computer do you have AutoCAD on, please? A Windows PC, or an Apple computer?

Software technician: Russell H., Computer Support Specialist replied 7 months ago

I cannot remote-connect to a Mac computer (I see that you stated you have AutoCAD on a Mac computer above, pardon me for overlooking it before) so I have left your request for another Expert in this category to take up.

I really need someone to get on the phone with me & remotely enter my computer so I can show all.
Otherwise this isn't going to work & Ill just get my money back
