The DXF/ DWG that I imported is at the wrong scale. How do I correct this? 

Version(s): 10, 11, 12
Although SoftPlan draws at a 1:1 scale, the program that the file was exported from may have used a different scale. One alternative is to change the scale in the originating program prior to exporting the file. Otherwise, it will need to be resized to bring the drawing to 1:1 after being imported into SoftPlan. The Adjust Size command can be used to enter a scale factor to bring the objects to the scale of 1:1. It is helpful if you have a dimension for reference on the drawing, or know the original scale. If you have an original dimension available, select Edit > Adjust Size. The program will prompt to ‘Block select Item(s) to Adjust size’. Draw an expanding box around the objects. Enter the scale factor calculated by dividing the values for the known actual dimension and the measured SoftPlan dimension of the same object.

Version(s): 13 +

One alternative is to change the scale in the originating program prior to exporting the file. Otherwise, it will need to be resized to bring the drawing to 1:1 after being imported into SoftPlan. The Adjust Size command can be used to enter a scale factor or known distance to bring the objects to the scale of 1:1. It is helpful if you have a dimension for reference on the drawing, or know the original scale. If you have an original dimension available, select Edit > Adjust Size. The program will prompt to ‘Block select Item(s) to Adjust size’. Draw an expanding box around the objects. In the menu, enable the option for ‘Distance’. Then type in the value of the known dimension. At this point the program will prompt you to draw the ‘Adjust Size Distance Line’. Turn on Snap (F11) in order to make an accurate trace and pick the end points of the object. Alternatively you can follow the same steps but instead enter the scale factor. This will resize the objects on screen to 1:1.
