>How do you plot multiple scale drawings on one sheet?
It appears (perhaps) you're not using paperspace???? If not, reasd up
on it a tad and I think you'll find it fairly simple once you get the
hang of it. My approach, which is only one of many, is to create an
actual size titleblock and border "sheet" in paperspace, that is for a
D size architectural sheet it's actually 36x24. Then create paperspace
mviews within the boudaries of the hard clip limits of the overall
border, these latter being roughly 1/2" within the limits of the paper
edge on my plotter.
Within these paperspace mviews, also refered to as floating viewports,
you can issue the zoom command and respond with 1/nXP where "n" is the
scaling factor you wish to use in the viewport. Meaning that for a
1/4"=1'-0" plot you would enter 1/48xp, and so forth.
You can create as many floating viewports as you like within the
border of your drawing sheet, you can create more than one drawing
sheet in paperspace and have yet more floating viewports on them as
well. At a point, depending on the amount of resources you have
available on your system and the setting of the system variable
MAXACTVP, new or existing viewports may not display their contents.
Use the mview command to "turn off" viewports that aren't being
plotted or need to be displayed if/when that occurs.
