How do I plot one drawing at 1/8" = 1'-0" and another at 1/4" = 1'-0" on the same sheet?

Version(s): 10, 11, 12
The Multi Drawing Scale feature allows a drawing to be scaled relative to another drawing. To do this, you must first open a drawing which is referred to as the base drawing (Drawing A). Then from File > Multi Drawing you will be able to enable the Multi Drawing feature and add a second drawing (Drawing B) to the drawing screen. Once positioned on screen, you will have two distinct drawings visible. When plotting, however, the drawing that you scale is the base drawing (Drawing A). If you want the secondary drawing to plot at 1/8" while the base is plotted at 1/4", from the Multi Drawing menu use the scaling feature to scale Drawing B down by .5 or 50%. When the scale is set at 1/4" = 1'-0" for Drawing A, according to our scaling factor, Drawing B will need to be 50% smaller, so we get a plot scale of 1/8" for this drawing.
