New to Softplan from Revit. What I am having trouble with is knowing the scale of my drawing. In both Revit and AutoCAD this information is readily available to see. How do I find the scale of my drawing outside of plan sets? There must be a way as the Multi DWG dialogue box mentions scale at 1.000.

In SoftPlan you are drawing at full scale.  When you create a plan set, you define the paper size and set the scale of each drawing when it is placed on the plan set or by editing it from the plan set after.  If you are printing an individual drawing, scale is set in the print dialog box.

I'm glad softplan works like this. I HATE drawing "in scale"  


In my opinion, drawing should ALWAYS be done to scale... and then set the scale factor on your sheet to fit.
