Zoom Fit

Zoom Fit displays the drawing with all its elements as large as possible on the screen.

Unlike Zoom Bounds, Zoom Fit ignores drawing bounds.

Zoom Fit includes entities on layers that are turned off but does not include those on frozen layers.

Points from deleted or modified elements that are still saved in the drawing can influence the results. These points are deleted when a drawing rebuilds. Therefore, before using Zoom Fit, you should use the Rebuild command.

To use Zoom Fit:

  • Click View > Zoom > Fit (or type ZoomFit).


Command: ZoomFit

Menu: View > Zoom > Fit
