When we use the CAD software, the benefits of plotting through the layout space than the mode space is that when you need to adjust the drawing to a different proportion, you just only need to adjust the proportion of the viewport instead of zooming in and out the frame. In addition, you can call the graphics in the same mode space.
Here we take the ZWCAD the example to make an introduction to the method of plotting through the layout space.
First, we can do some basic setting to te layout space according to our drawing habit.
Menu: Tool>Option>Display.
The display dialog box, where you define the basic setting of the layout space, is as the figure 1 shows.
Here we set to display the printable area in the drawing and hide the drawing background. In addition, we change the color in the Drawing/Layout into black. Certainly, you can adjust this setting according to your preference.
Second, we draw the figure or the graph in the mode space, which is as figure 2 shows.
