Another way to ask this question: with my preferred units at 1 inch, starting a line at 0,0 and ending at 10,0 is that a 10 inch line sense I have my units at inches?
Or is all this just to have the proper scale for a print out on a paper?
This also obviously would be connected to the dimensions that show up in the print on paper.
Something seems way off but I can't figure out what it is.
Options ==> Current Drawing Preferences ==> UNITS (INCH for this example)
Then set the GRID
X and Y Spacing are the "Grid marks" when you want them shown. The larger the number, the fewer and further between Grid marks.
At 10=X and 10=Y, there are 10" between every adjacent pair.
At 1=X, 10=Y there will be 10 x 1" Grid marks in the X direction for every 1 x 10" Grid mark in the Y even though, zoomed out, there are lines of intersection only at every 10". Zoom in to see the smaller "X" marks.
