I would really appreciate if it was possible to control (i.e.: set up & check the current value) the drawing scale directly from the command bars, without having to get deep into the Options menu (which is really unpractical and slow).
Actually there is a "Drawing scale" icon, but it allows to choose only among a limited selection of values: if the required drawing scale is outside this range (which happens quite often in my job), there is no alternative from the Options way.Moreover, if the scale is not included into the above-mentioned selection of values, the icon will not show the set scale value, but only a totally useless "Custom" string.Please, improve this item!!
Have you tried holding CTRL & ALT and dragging the icon from View > Setup > Grid & Ruler Setup to your workspace? This creates a duplicate of the menu.
Hi Adrian and thanks for your reply!Of course I put in my menu that icon and that allows a quicker access to the Drawing Scale window, but you easily understand that the Drawing Scale is such a fundamental aspect in an image that you should have full control of it and immediate visualization of the current active scale, instead of a totally useless "Custom" string.
Hello Enrico; Not to Sure what you want to do, but if you draw your art at 100% then you can go to the menu bar and scale it to what ever you want.
What I want to do? I want to be able to see at a quick glance which is the current drawing scale (i.e.: 1:200) and, if required, to change it to another value (i.e.: from 1:200 to 1:50) without having to go into the Tools -> Options -> Document -> Rulers -> Edit Scale menu, which is not exactly so easy to access, both for checking the scale value and for changing it.Moreover, if the drawing scale is not included in the limited preset (Corel called it «Typical scales») list (for example, 1:200 is NOT included in that list), when you check the current drawing scale value, you do not find the value itself, but a totally useless «Custom» string!I hope it is clear now.Now, I'm afraid that what you mention in your answer is not the Drawing Scale, which you can access by the path that I mentioned above, but the classic Zoom level, which of course I know and use daily without any problem. Please correct me if I understood you wrong...
I see you stumbled across a previous post that has a solution for you.
