why can I not measure the drawing
Once I redraw the image I can't get a measurement of the drawing. I can modify the drawing but can't scale it or measure it;
related to an answer for:
How to convert a picture to a cad drawing
Smart End of the Tape Measure
is the image in the front of the lines/arcs etc. you sketched over? See draw order in the image pulldown menu
Where did you attach your image? In Paper space or model space?
How have you tried to scale? Using window or crossing window?
If the image is on a separate layer, try turning that layer off and then doing your scale.
What command are you using to "measure"? The dist command will give you distance between two points (hint: use esnap to select points using endp or int at the command link when asked for a point).
If none of these items helped, send us the drawing you are having issues with to firstname.lastname@example.org
to answer this question.
