Why can I not get this right?



I have professionally made shapes from APC and these rac shapes are awesome.
However, I cannot ever get the dimensional shapes to give the right measurements.

each number space in a rack is 1.75" but it shows 0.22" when I use a dimensioning shape that measures distance.

Can you post a sample visio file which contains the shapes you are having problems with?

Is it a scaling issue or an offset issue?

Your rack elements are showing 1.75 inches when I drag the Vertical measures onto the page.

The rack graphic you showed in your original screen capture doesn't match the rack graphic in the sample you posted. Perhaps the scaling or shape used on that page was different.

There is no scaling in this file. When I select that rack, its properties show it is 7.982 inches tall when is should be about 72 inches tall if it was drawn to scale. If you paste a rack from the first file into the problem file you see the 8x scale difference.

An unscaled rack that is 6 feet tall will take up many sheets of letter sized paper. If you go in to Page Setup > Drawing scale and set a custom scale of 1in = 8in. That is the same scale setting in the first document you posted and it will allow the full size rack to fit on a single Letter sized piece of paper. Then use the Size and Position dialog to size the rack to its 'real' dimensions.
