Viewing your drawing

Changing the magnification of your drawing

You can change the magnification of your drawing at any time by zooming. The cursor changes to a magnifying glass (

) when a zoom tool is active. Zoom out to reduce the magnification so you can see more of the drawing, or zoom in to increase the magnification so you can see a portion of the drawing in greater detail. Changing the magnification of the drawing affects only the way the drawing is displayed; it has no effect on the dimensions of the entities in your drawing.

NOTE If you are working in a layout viewport and cannot zoom, the layout viewport may be locked. The scale and view do not change in model space while panning or zooming in a locked layout viewport. For more details, See Modifying layout viewports.
